First ever....

On Saturday, January 8th, Little John went on his first ever temple trip to do baptisms for the dead. (I had to explain to him that he would be the proxy and that we DO NOT exhume bodies and actually do the baptism on dead bodies. He had been a little bit concerned until I told him that.) He rode down with four young men from the Hutchinson Ward and they met others youth from Hutchinson there.The Oklahoma City Temple
Driving down to Oklahoma City.
John, in front of the temple.

All the young men.... Jacob, Jason, John and Dustin. (I didn't make John wear his suit coat and I probably should have.)

Reminds me of our youth temple trips to Dallas. It was 8 hours round trip...it would be a very long Saturday. Lots of memories from those road trips. Good times!

Ah, that is always a precious "first"...the first temple trip. We tried to make sure one of us went with them to help ease their nervousness. I cannot believe he is 12!
