The "old" car
Gosh, I'm going to miss my stickers on the back window!
Well, I've finally given in! I fought the idea of a van for a long, long time, and yet here we are... proud owners of a Sienna. Most of you know, I loved my Camry. It was somewhat sporty and didn't make me feel "old". Here lately I've started telling myself to GET OVER IT!!! My children have pushed me beyond all measures in the car. Amos and Grace fight constantly EVERY time we go anywhere. Someone is always touching, hitting, poking and yes, even looking at someone else the wrong way! It's never a good thing if your mad when you get to church on Sunday morning because you had to referee a fight while driving. The more they would fight, the more crazy I was getting!
I finally reached my breaking point and decided it was time. Grace and I had a hard time saying goodbye to the car. When we got out of it in the parking lot for the last time she said, "you've been a good little car. I will really miss you." As she was talking to the car, she had her arms stretched around the door trying to hug it! As pathetic as it may sound, she was saying and doing all the things I wanted to do, but didn't!
On the way home from picking it up (we special ordered it and had to wait a week for it to get here), they watched a movie and I didn't hear a peep out of them! I don't intend on popping in a movie every time we get in the car, however, today was a special occasion. I was so impressed with how quiet they were, and how everyone kept their hands (and feet) to themselves!
I guess I have officially embraced the van. I don't know why I had this preconceived idea that vans weren't cool! I would recommend it to any mother that would like to keep her sanity!!! Thank the Lord for cars where the seats don't touch!
The new van!
I LOVE how the side windows roll down like a car
I think they like it too!
Their favorite thing is the dvd players....imagine!
This picture says it all!
Here is a scary thought!!!
