This is what we first saw as we came into the city: the temple. It was so beautiful and the Spirit both within and without was amazing. Right after we got there, CK dropped K and I off to take her in to do baptisms for the dead. What a great experience. My daughter becomes so loving and so amazing when she is in the temple. It is a great evidence of the special spirit that is there. CK took the other three kids.
After the temple, we gathered our happy kids and went to Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo, a very well done musical. We loved it. The kids loved it and are still singing the songs.
Dinner at the condo:
Once we got to the condo, we had a family testimony meeting, then each of us wrote of our thoughts and feelings while being in Nauvoo. Then, we played some family games. It was great! I absolutely love having all four kids together. It is an opportunity that we don't get often and I cherish it when it happens.
Now, K, C, and J are with their dad and CK, A, and I are in Idaho. CK's grandpa passed away and we are here for the funeral. It is crazy to have had just one short day at home to unpack, do laundry, and repack. Also, we will end up being in 10 states in 8 days. CRAZY!!! This doesn't even include states that we fly over. So worth it, though. I am LOVING being here in Idaho. I love CK's family and I am so grateful for the love they show me and our three kids that aren't with us today.
