The kids found a way to entertain themselves at the mall while Tim was calling people about the car.
After another Chick-Fil-A lunch, we hung out with some friends at Books-A-Million for a few hours.
Unfortunately, we then got an update on our very sick van. It looks like it'll be more than just a quick fix. My friend Jennifer took all the kids to play at McDonalds while we tried to decide what to do. We grabbed a few essentials out of the van, talked to the mechanic working on it, reclaimed our kids, and then hit the road.
Unfortunately, we decided it was more prudent to head back East instead of further West.
As much as we love Arkansas and all our friends and family, we're a bit disappointed that we aren't further along the path to Arizona. Right now, we're staying with Tim's parents -- a little more than 2 hours from Little Rock (in the wrong direction).
The latest word on the van is that we'll be heading west sometime next week. I'm sure that God has a plan.
