What a great Sunday!! Today Carrie went to her Nursery class for the first time, and she did really well!! I stayed with her for a little while for her to get settled, then I snuck out. Unfortunately I am not a very good sneaker outer, because she saw me. When she saw me leave she gave out a huge scream and started to cry. Luckily she has great Nursery leaders. I watched through the window as one of the leaders rushed over to pick her up, and she immediately stopped crying. I checked on her a little while later and the same Nursery leader was hauling her around, but no tears. When I went to pick her up after our meetings she was sitting at a table with other kids playing with play dough as happy as could be. They said she did very well. Hurray!!! I must admit as I sat through Sunday School and Relief Society I felt like something was missing, and in fact I will miss having her with me... but I am glad that she did so well today. Hopefully that will continue!!!
After church today we decided to take the kids to see the Temple. We are so lucky to live so close to the Temple, literally a few minute drive from our home, we could walk there easily. We walked around the grounds, looked up to see how tall it is, looked at the beautiful flowers... We didn't stay long, but I want my kids to know what the Temple is. We were lucky enough to go this spring as a family to the Draper Temple open house. Andrew remembered that, and wanted to go inside the Logan Utah Temple as we had done. I explained briefly why we were not able to do that. I hope for my kids to someday be able to go inside the Temple, that they may be sealed for eternity to their future spouses and families. I am so very thankful for the many blessings the Temple provides.
