Alright folks! A few months ago, we were thinking about the idea of a minivan. Just thinking about it. We went to a couple of dealerships and looked at a few, even test drove one. And then we knew what to expect. At that time, we decided that it just wasn't the right time to get one and eventually we would know the right time. We've been keeping our eyes open this summer, while at the same time, taking care of a few things. Then recently a friend of ours from church came to us. He works for one of the dealerships we had visited. He asked us how things were going and wanted to know what had come of our search. He wanted to meet with Jeff to see what they could do for us. Tuesday night last week, Jeff went in and we were not expecting to be able to get one just yet, that we would have to wait a little longer, but he wanted to help. When Jeff came home, he told me that he didn't have bad news. We couldn't believe that we were going to be able to get one! We just didn't realize that it would be so soon! He told me about the one he had seen and we would later look at, but he was hoping to get us a red one. Thursday night, after Jeff got home, we had dinner and went to check out the van that he had seen Tuesday night. Oh, I might add that they were having a great big tent sale last week as well! When we showed up, there was our friend, walking over to us and waved us toward a beautiful red van. It didn't click with me, but this was the van that our friend wanted us to check out. And Jeff hadn't seen it. By the end of that night, we had gone home inside that thing! I thought we were just going to test drive and think things over again! Not once Thursday did I think we would have a van sitting in our driveway that night. I wanted to have a picture to post on here, but that will have to wait. We'll take that this weekend. I have been in unbelief and that is why I posted that last week, I just kept thinking that something would come up that we wouldn't be able to keep it! I guess we are on an uphill! WOW, I'm a minivan-driving soccer mom now! (Oh, and for another post to some soon, Jonathan is supposed to be starting soccer within the next week!)
Have a great day everyone!
