Ghana

Lighter Things.

Remember the goat photo? No? Here’s a link to it on this blog. I want to give credit where credit is due. It came from The Pale Observer.

I was reading her blog today while we’re all recovering from “the plague”, as it shall further be known around here. The Diva is the latest victim, she is moaning/sleeping next to me. Anyway, my eyes almost bugged out my head when I saw this picture of a sign that I know VERY well. It makes me guffaw each and every time we pass it in Ghana. There is one on the way into Accra from Buduburam, because I laugh every.single.time.

Can you see it? She took it through the wind shield while riding through Ghana. It’s an ad for a school called “The Peculiar Child Academy”, a place where all 5 of the littles who live in our home might feel VERY at home, if they are defining peculiar the same way we do in the U.S.

who thinks it is too silent around here. She is going to investigate.

  1. Just found your blog from other Ghana blogs. I’m the proud mom of 4 – two biological and two adopted. I love how you share your successes and challenges and also your priorities! I wish more in the world would understand that happiness doesn’t come from things – but from the wonderful people we surround ourselves with. Wishing you and your beautiful family the very best!

  2. I LOVE IT! I was looking through my notes yesterday from when I was in Ghana and I had that one written down (sometimes I wrote down the names of signs as we passed). Another school name I wrote down was the “virgin child” elementary….hmmmmmmm…..I thought that was a bit different. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me of the fun stuff and for the light moment.

  3. I don’t remember that one, but I do remember the Virgin Child school. I loved some of the signs on the back of the tro-tros too. A favorite was “God Will Protect Us.” I hope so because that’s what I was praying for every time we set out of the roads!
