June Journal

 The month of June flew by - the girls were able to return to school in-person for the last few weeks, we had a friend visiting that we took out every Saturday to show around Qatar, we celebrated the girls' birthdays with an ice cream extravaganza, Madi turned 8, we celebrated Jason for Father's Day, and we checked out the new water park in Qatar!

We also packed and got ready for our flight to America which I am currently on as I type this post - amazing right?! 😁

Here's some of the highlights from this month 😊

  1. The girls excited to all head back to school in-person!
  2. Love a good charcuterie board - and super proud of my pepperoni and salami roses 😅
  3. Online learning day with their constant companion - Zoey. 
  4. We tried making almond butter blossoms. The girls just ate the Hershey kiss, but we enjoyed the entire cookie.
  5. Bubbles and swimming during the week!
  6. Teacher's gifts! 🤗
  7. Olivia dominating a game of Uno. We've been playing a lot more games recently and loving it!
  8. Our new game stash - we got a chance to order games directly to the house instead of having to try and bring back this summer and I may have gone a tad overboard in how many I ordered, haha!
  9. Enjoying a round of the game of Life!

Last day of school pictures! I can't believe they are now in Grade 1 and Grade 3! 😱

The past five Saturdays we’ve had the opportunity to take a friend visiting Qatar for work to some of our favorite places {and a couple new ones too!} From the city sights of Souq Waqif and the National Museum to outside the city visiting Abu Nakhla, Mangroves, and Sheik Faisal Museum to diving further into the desert for Eye Rock and Umm Bab Quarry and more! We had some fun adventures and it was a great reminder of how much beauty there is to explore in Qatar.

Jason and I were able to sneak away for a date night just before leaving Qatar thanks so some amazing friends. They not only asked to watch the girls so we could go out, but even insisted on taking them out to dinner! The girls enjoyed Cheesecake Factory with Mr Dan and Ms Gena while Jason and I enjoyed trying a new restaurant and enjoy each other's company.
