8:50 PM (Randall posting): And we thought yesterday was a long and tiring day! But here we are, and we have made it though today. All of our events for today seemed to go well--church, visit with Sophie's old daycare, wedding, and revival. It was exhausting, though.
Our big letdown of the day was that the Oldsmobile died on Susan as she was leaving for church this morning. Thank God Eileen was here and they all piled into her car and went to church. The absolute last thing we need in our lives right now is an unreliable car. Given how much we have sunk into this car already in the past few months ($2000), it is really getting frustrating. We're hoping it will be something relatively minor and all will be well soon.
Sophie continues to hold up well through everything, even if she gets tired more easily and is visibly pale these last couple of days. She is still her same old self. After revival tonight, someone on the front steps bent over and said "Hi" to Sophie as she was flitting about and Sophie stopped in her tracks and said, "Oh, HI!" like she was genuinely happy to see this person and hadn't seen her in a long time. She is one of a kind!
