So the Pope mass moves indoors due to the heat. Upon arrival the line to get inside wrapped around the square…in the hot sun. One child wants to ditch, the other wants to wait it out. This picture is 1/4 of the line. So we sit off to the side on the shade and contemplate. Huge bummer….but it is really hot and not worth heat stroke.
I was ready to throw in the towel if the kids said enough was enough. Ben continued to hang in there. I said as long as one of them wanted to wait, I’d wait too. Sure enough, the line eventually died down and we got in. It was standing room only but the kids saw him and that meant mission accomplished. Ben’s perseverance paid off.
