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.

Ready and Waiting

We've got everything ready to go...now we just need a baby! Our newest little princess should be arriving sometime within the next week or so, and we are all very excited and ready to see her. I've had fun decorating her room, with lots of help from big brother and sister. Lee Anna thinks everything is "so, so cute," and Sawyer is already practicing climbing up the crib to peek in (and I'm already practicing telling him to get down!).

Here I am just yesterday, at 39 weeks. I've noticed people staring a lot when I'm out the last few days. I think they're afraid I'm going to have the baby right where I am! I definitely feel like I could pop, but I bet I'll make it a few more days.

I hope we'll be back soon with the big announcement!


  1. Oh, I can't wait to hear the news!!! I will be praying for you- for a safe delivery and easy adjustments. I love the bedding!

  2. We'll be anxiously awaiting the good news!!! The crib looks "so, so cute," indeed! We'll be praying for everything to go well.


  3. Love the nursery, Beth! And I know how you feel! It's definitely a lesson in being gracious to the "comments" people make about your huge belly! ;)


  4. So excited for y'all! Can't wait to see pictures of sweet Sarah Claire!
