Off to Doha, the capital of Qatar which is about 5 hours drive southeast of here. We have not been before so it is a real adventure. Driving most of the way there through desert with endless sand, very hot temperatures and not much else. What fun!!! LOL.
All four of the munchkins are competing in an International Swimming competition. The draw to drive that far is for the chance to compete in a 50 meter pool. Here they swim short course 25 meters and have not ever experienced long course swimming. It will be a challenge and I can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they actually see the how far it really is. The facility is also indoors and air conditioned – which in the heat we experience here will make a nice change from the last two competitions they were in. Heat stroke is not a pleasant condition to suffer.
I am hoping that the change will also clear up this cough. It won’t budge, however the break, fine company and a change of pace should be just the ticket.
I’ll be back in a week or so with some photos and more layouts to share.
