Signing Time in Las Vegas

I am not sure how many of you know, but Signing Time recently went to Las Vegas as part of the Las Vegas PBS “Sing and Sign” event. Rachel, LeeAnn, Tonya (associates and friends of Signing Time) and I did a couple events while we were there. One of the first things we did the day of the event was Rachel’s early morning interview with Fox Channel 5 in Las Vegas. Rachel talked to the Ted Pretty about the benefits of teaching sign language to children and toddlers at an early age. Ted showed Rachel some signs that he was …

Going Back To Ghana on Saturday!

It is official!! I am going back to Ghana this Saturday! Are you floored? So am I. A few months ago I was invited to return for a meeting with a number of worldwide organizations to discuss what is working, what is not working and how to sustain the successful programs in the future. When I got the invite I was so excited, I checked the dates and saw that even though my May was pretty full, I could make it work if I left for Ghana on May 10th and returned the 16th. The idea of such a short …

Pieces of Ghana

I have received a number of request and questions about Ghana. Yeah! I am glad you all enjoyed the experience as much as we did. It is still something I think about daily. Aaron is working on the video this week and we are hoping to have it as a special feature on an upcoming Signing Time DVD. Yes we have video of the crocodile run, the canopy bridges and my feeble attempt at carrying water on my head. After my blog that showed Alfred and the first elephant carving, my friend Natalie called and said, “I love my elephant! …

You Win Some, You Lose Some

I know some of you are already having “Going To Ghana” withdrawals. So am I! I promise to continue posting some more pictures and stories. I am relieved to have the entire journal transcribed and posted and it was a real challenge for me to “go back” especially over the final two journal days. When all is said and done and read, I realized I was only successful in giving you a flavor of the experience. Honestly, I have concerns about what I posted and that eventually there will come the request for me to remove it. My bigger concerns …

Freedom of Vinyl Lettering

As I am coming to the end of transcribing and posting my Ghana Journal I am realizing that there are pieces, pictures and stories that I somehow left out. Surprising I know, since I have actually transcribed over 46 single spaced pages (so far), in a Word Doc. I know I mentioned that the taxis have vinyl lettering on the back windows. 99% of the sayings or words are spiritual in nature. Maybe we can be inspired by these images. What would you put on your car?

More Ghana Pictures!

Yesterday, Aaron was able to get all of Robi and Derek’s pictures of our trip to Ghana. Tonight I posted my fourth Ghana Journal 2008 page. Check out Leah’s fancy braids! A hair salon made out of a metal shipping container! Be amazed at just how much CAN be carried on one’s head! All this and more as we continued to frighten small African children. After posting that page, I went back into the first three journal pages and added pictures where I could. Be sure to take a quick look through the previous pages. You will see JoJo Boy …

From Africa to Oklahoma

I got back late last night from Oklahoma where I was asked to be the Keynote Speaker at the OFCEC (Oklahoma Federation of the Council for Exceptional Children). Every flight was delayed. One of the flights attempted to take off twice and then returned to the gate where we got off and tried another plane. Sitting in airports and on airplanes, I had plenty of time to get a head start transcribing my journal. You can find it on the right hand side of your screen under “Pages” The top Page is Ghana Journal 2008. That is where you want …

Shell Shock? or Jet Lag?

We are home. Our flight got in around 11:00PM last night. I was surprised how comfortable I was with all of the snow even though I was in a t-shirt and a skirt and flip flops. It is SO good to be home! We all showered before bed and I had to wash my hair twice to get all of the smoky smell out of it. Just like when you have been camping. We finally went to bed around 2AM. Leah was up promptly at 7AM chomping at the bit to go to school and see all of her friends. …
