We're Jason, Beth, Lee Anna, Sawyer, and Sarah Claire, a family of five living, learning, and laughing lots in Northern Africa.
We hope you can learn a little (and maybe laugh a little too) as you read about our latest adventures.

Let the Festivities Begin!

This summer, G.G. (Jason's mom) sent a package to us and it took 4 months to get here. Because of that, when she got our Christmas package together, she gave herself plenty of extra lead time. So since the first week of November we've had a big box of Christmas presents hiding behind a curtain in our bedroom.

This weekend, G.G. decided it was close enough to the big day, so we did a video conference with her and Grandpa so they could watch us open our gifts. The box was a little taller than Lee Anna, but she had a blast seeing what was coming out.

G. G. sewed a new cover for Lee Anna's playhouse, and she even found a material that looks like little bricks. Lee Anna is loving it.

I think she sent the boys footballs so they wouldn't be misled into thinking that the black and white round ball we see so much here is a "football!" Now we've just got to convince Sawyer that it's not a chocolate football. I started teaching him to play defense already. He can't really catch the ball yet, but he can knock it down. I think he might be the next great FSU cornerback, like Deion Sanders, Leroy Butler or Terrell Buckley. Thanks G.G.!! We had fun opening all our presents!
