Our New (to us) Blessing

No, I didn't have the baby yet...that will be a whole different kind of blessing! But, last month we were able to get me another van, yay! In case you don't remember, September 8th of last year my van was smashed to smitherines and we became a single car family for several months. In all honesty it wasn't that bad and we would have gotten by with it for a lot longer than we did, but Isaac's work circumstances made it impossible for me to take him to work and have the car (long story), and being carless much more often than having a car was taxing on all of us. SO...we packed up the family and went out in search of the perfect van for us all. And this is what we ended up with!
It's a light blue 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan! We have lots of room for the 4 of us, new baby, and plenty of stuff that goes along with carting around a family of 5. It's already been such a blessing, though we had some issues with the dealer we bought it from, but that's all fixed and the van is wonderful. I'm enjoying new freedom again being able to get out of the house when we're all stir crazy and need a coffee fix ;) (OK, maybe I'm the only one who needs that, but still...)

I was just thinking about you the other day and wondered if you got another car. I bet you love having the freedom again and all the space! YAY! Jeanine is getting so big! I love all the cute fabrics of her diapers!

I just came across your post. So sweet. The same thing happened to our van and we are to looking for a van. The one we are looking at right now is identical to yours. Are you still happy with it? I love your blog. We had our first baby June of 2011. Blessings to you and your family:)
