Temple Day / National Museum

Another great day at the temple this week.  We're sending so many home soon.  This will be their last temple day in Seoul.

A group photo of the current office staff.  We have a great time together.

A few of our missionaries have had some trips to the clinic recently.  We escorted an elder a couple of times and ran into some missionaries from the Seoul South mission too!  But we just keep swimming!

On Saturday we went to the Korean National Museum.  This is next to the museum.

This is the Army base next to it.

President Sonksen tells us that there used to be a golf course here before the museum was built.  You can see the Seoul Tower between the two buildings.

An ancient suit of armor.

This is a large pagoda on display.

There's lots of Buddas

And dragon designs.  Also lots of porcelain and other arts.  You can see the Chinese influences.

Some of our Arizona kiddos dressed up like cows for Chik-fil-A day!  They had a fun day together!  Just missing the four older ones and our four Idaho kiddos or they'd have been way up the stairs!

We've lost some loved ones recently.  Alan's mother's sister passed away last month.  Mildred and her husband and Grandma and Grandpa Anderson spent some time in Arizona to get away from the cold winters back in the 1980s.  So we got to know them quite well.

Then last week, my mother's brother's wife Elaine passed and just a few days later, my mother's sister Vonda passed on too.  Vonda reminded us so much of our Grandma Grace.  We can only imagine the great reunion they are having on the other side.

She was an Aggie fan through and through!  She kept her basketball season tickets up until last year.  She was 97!
