Nicholas’ Field Trip

Nicholas had a class field trip to the park on Thursday.  Parents were required to attend as transportation was not provided.  So there were roughly 20 kids plus 20 parents (moms, dads, and/or nannies) plus his 3 teachers and 4 add’l helpers from the school.  It was a packed playground!!!  We had a picnic lunch and played soccer in an open field.  It was a beautiful day and the kids loved spending time together at the park with their parents.

Ken took one look at these pictures and said, “Wow!  Look at the grass!!”  Amazing how you take grass for granted in the states.  It takes a lot of maintenance to keep a park looking like this in Qatar.  Thankfully the government supports several parks around Doha so people can enjoy some greenery.  Otherwise, it’s nothing but sand!
