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.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween was a little different for our kids here. We couldn't just go from door to door, since most of the locals didn't know it was a holiday. And the houses here are all in big buildings, so it would be pretty strange to go door to door inside a big building. And we don't really know how to say "trick or treat" in Arabic, so nobody would understand why a small American kid was standing at his door saying something in English. SO, we improvised and had an indoor Trick-or-Treat party. Each of the parents got behind a door and the kids ran form door to door inside our friends' flat and collected candy. Our family costume theme was "Flying Things" so Lee Anna was a butterfly, and Sawyer was Batman. A good time was had by all. Here's Lee Anna avoiding the sting of bumblebee Lydia.
The Joker better watch out.

  1. I'm impressed y'all did that much! We didn't do a thing. Oh, they did have matching socks.
