Today we had our second session on our tropical fish. In the first lesson we studied photos and made many sketches. We chose our favourite sketch to make into our models. Today we painted the background designs. Next we will add all the details and that will be especially fun.

Every Wednesday we have a special library time in the Allen Centre and we LOVE it. There are always new books to find and share and there is always a quiet corner to curl up with a new book. Ah bliss!
Every week Emma goes to the sketching group in the Allen Centre and now her little brother Jacob has joined the group too. She is working on a sketch of a zebra and we are looking forward to seeing it when it is finished. What a fine artist you are Emma.

Today we walked around the Doha Souq. The Souq is an old market place where you can buy anything from spices, to falcons (birds not cars). One part was the pet area and that's where I met this beautiful parrot. Today it was 47 degrees which was very very hot indeed. I wonder what the temperature will be at Momona airport. See you soon.

Greetings from the Dead Sea where you really can float so, so easily. First we covered ourselves in special Dead`Sea mud that is supposed to be very good for you. Then we walked down to the edge of the sea and gently lay in the water. It was amazing because you really do just float without even trying. Just be careful when you come here that you don't get any in your mouth because it tastes TERRIBLE!!!!

Today Emma brought her beautiful budgie to spend the day with us. We put his cage by the window so that he could chat to the wax eyes. He loved our singing and recorder playing and even sang to us. What a musical well cared for budgie Emma.
