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.

Global Children

Our kids celebrated International Children's Day at their school this week. The note we got said they wanted the children to dress in native costumes from their home country. Now as far as we can tell, most of the kids are from the country where we live, but maybe the teachers know something we don't know. Last year, we sent Lee Anna in blue jeans and a T-shirt, since that's what kids from her country wear, and the teacher said she didn't look "international" enough. Hmmm... So this year, we put Sawyer in his galabeya, since he was born here, and this little cap, and we dressed Lee Anna in her national colors. We had a hard time getting Sawyer to school because of the crowds of people who wanted to stop and see the little pale-faced, blue-eyed baby in a galabeya.
A good time was had by all.
