She's beginning to feel the difference in her life when she waits too long to go. It has been a tradition to take our kids to the temple as soon as they turn 12, and we started the tradition of going to the temple before school resumes when Sierra was a sophomore in high school. It can really benefit their life in so many ways especially as they get older, and even though Noah is seven he loves going to the temples. It doesn't matter to him that he can't go inside yet. It's almost as if he understands why he needs to be 12 before he can go in. He obviously feels a good feeling when we're there because he doesn't mind waiting while his sisters are inside the temple. Plus, I think he likes spending time with me surrounded by all the beauty that the temple brings! Here's another little video that I made of my sweet family after leaving the temple.
Since the temple in Boston was open for half a day on Labor Day we took advantage, and went early in the morning. It is always packed so it's wise to get there early or make a reservation so that you can get a "ticket." The girls then went in to do baptisms after Jon and I were done.
I think the kids are ready for school tomorrow!
