Terrific Tip for a Temple Trip



Recently, my son and his family took a visit to the temple. (My daughter--in-law isn't in the photo because, as usual, she is taking the picture.)

You'll notice that my eldest grandson is holding a clipboard in his hands. This is because his Primary president challenged all the kids and their families to go on a temple excursion and, while there, answer a few questions designed to pique their interest. Apparently, this activity caught the kids' imagination, and they explored the temple and its grounds with boundless enthusiasm, looking for answers to her queries. Sounds like a terrific idea to me, and I wanted to share it.

The outing, happily, was not only inspirational but fun. What's more, the children surprised their parents by navigating the entire experience with nary a fight or disagreement (a decidedly uncommon occurrence). The unique and uplifting spirit of the temple was felt by all, and the whole family had a wonderful day.

Pretty cool.

I wish that taking the kids to the temple didn't involve a 8 hour car ride!
