Temple Trip

Today for our Monday Easter Week activity we went on a trip to the new Payson Temple.  After Jesus entered Jerusalem he cleansed the temple, and then spent days teaching there.  We went to see how the building of the Payson temple was coming along.  A nice missionary explained the process of building the temple.  I was really impressed with how good the kids were.  He had lots of visuals which was helpful, but he still used words that we don't use every day (since we aren't builders).   The same nice missionary took our picture, but I forgot to make sure the temple was in it!  So here are a couple of pictures with us, and the corner of the temple.
Jake, Dan, Sherie, Connor, Kayli
 On the way home, Kayli and Connor each shared something that Jesus taught.  Connor shared the scripture in Matthew 5:30 that starts, "And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out..." which sent Dan into fits of the giggles.  Connor did explain the scripture after he read it.

Kayli picked Matthew 5:44 about loving your enemies.  She talked about how it doesn't help to return anger for anger.

What good children I have!
This is the result of our Palm Sunday activity.  We wrote things we are thankful for on the palm leaves.
