5:45 PM: Sophie got to go to church today for the first time since her diagnosis. A few people said they didn't even recognize her with her fashionable new haircut (perhaps I should consider a new profession!). Elisabeth had a few behavior problems during church, but for the most part, we did very well. Sabine was overcome with emotion seeing her brother lead a worship service for the first time. For those of us who knew him before he made the decision to go into ministry, it is an amazing sight to see him up there.
Sabine took Elisabeth to see a movie this afternoon while Sophie took a nap, and when they got home, Sabine took the girls outside to play. They had a picnic dinner in the driveway, but the mosquitos chased us inside. (Is it that time of year already?). We'll all head out to bible study shortly, and afterwards, Randall and I are going out to dinner. I've really been looking forward to that.
