This is the last thing I ever thought I’d be blogging about…We realized after our last vacation to Asheville, that there was no way we’re going to be able to go to Orlando in January with three kids. I always dreaded having to get a minivan and thought somehow I would be able to get away with an suv as long as we didn’t have 4 kids. But our last trip was so crowded we realized it was time. My sister Sara came home from her mission and was looking for a car so I sold her mine.
We couldn’t find anything in Louisville so drove up to Cincinnati and found the perfect one- a Honda Odyssey with leather & dvd that seats 8 and is in brand new condition. I knew it would be more convenient and comfortable for our family but thought it would be a chore to drive. After driving it for two weeks, I absolutely love it. I never thought in a million years I’d not only be driving- but enjoying driving- a minivan. I guess I really am a mom.
The boys love the dvd and I like that I can change the movies up front rather than trying to reach behind me like before, and Ethan can’t reach Joshua- he used to poke him when he’d fall asleep and make the poor kid cry. And suprisingly it drives just like a car, I never even know I’m in a bus except when I have to back up.
