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.

Crazy Art

Today was lots of fun. We went with some friends to a neat place just outside the city. Its name is a cross between the Arabic words "crazy" and "art," and it's a perfect description of the place. They call it an "art school," but it's really just a neat place for kids to come and experiment with different kinds of art. The kids can choose from pottery, weaving, woodworking, jewelry-making, painting, and several other activities. They get to make two things and take home what they create.

There are also all kinds of neat things to play on there. It's really hard to describe the place. We have never seen anything else like it. They have all kinds of swings and these big woven lattice-type things that the kids can climb on. Since we were there last, they've also added goats and donkeys that the kids can feed and ride. It's also a working farm. There are water buffalo and gorgeous green fields. We went once about a year and a half ago and have been wanting to go back ever since. We're going to try hard to make sure we go back again before another year and a half passes!
Here's a picture we took on our first trip out there. Sawyer was a bit smaller than he is now. He's lying on the cool lattice play thing.
