Our Newest Addition!

Well, I guess that I am officially a soccer Mom. No, my kids are not old enough to play soccer yet, but I have the "wheels" to get them to their practices! :)

We have waited until October of last year to save the money that we needed to purchase a second car for our family - and that is exactly what we did yesterday! Some of you guessed it!

I am so excited that we are the new owners of a 2004 Toyota Sienna minivan!!! Dawson and I went to pick it up yesterday and I drove it home! It was great!!! I love it!!! We wanted a minivan so that we could take vacations and cram all of our stuff into the vehicle and we also wanted to be able to drive more than our family around with us - so we prayed, waited, saved our money and the Lord provided this vehicle for us that fit our budget!

I have looked out at our driveway a few times already and I have to say that the minivan is such a blessing to our lives. I still cannot believe that it is really ours - we paid for it in full, and I am so thankful that the Lord helped us to save the money to pay for it so that we can continue to live debt free. God is good.

Well, now I have to continue to pack...we are going to take a little vacation! I guess the van came just in time! :)
