TWO cars!!!

As of this past Saturday we are now a two car family!!! We're all thrilled! We've been a one car family for five years one month two weeks and five days - not that I'm counting! However, if you are counting, you'll note that we went down to one car before Addison was even born.

The Lord provided this vehicle at just the right time. It belonged to Ray's step-sister & all we had to do was get some work done & it was ours!

Isn't it cute? Ray looks *so* fabulous driving his "girl car." (His words, not mine!) I can't wait to get my hands on it - I haven't driven a stick shift in a long time & it's well-known that an automatic just isn't nearly as much fun to drive!

I can't begin to explain the relief that we both have a vehicle to drive. If you've ever been in this situation you know what I'm talking about! I know the kids & I don't have to be stuck at home all day (especially if an emergency came up!) & I also don't have to wake the kids up early in the morning to drop Ray at the bus stop if I did need the car. No more stopping everything in the middle of the afternoons so that we can pick Ray up from work. I'm SO thankful for this vehicle, it's such a blessing!

That is truly exciting! We are one vehicle family - not very common! But thankfully my hubby has a van provided from his work so the only tricky times are on weekends as he's only allowed to drive it for work purposes.
I had a bug as a courtesy vehicle once and loved it! It was exactly that colour too. So fun!

That will be a relief for you! We are also a rare, one car family. We ride our bikes a bit but there are lots of times when it is super inconvenient!
