Well, since we are expecting a third lil blessing fairly soon, we have been looking to find a larger vehicle. We almost did this when I was pregnant with Kaylee but then realized it was very doable to drive our Malibu with just two kids. Plus the car was paid off. So we waited.
|a little over two months before Kaylee was born|
I'm not certain if our Malibu can handle three car seats in the back. It is a fairly roomy vehicle. But we have decided now we would like to get a larger vehicle.
So we listed our Toyota Corolla for sale on various sites. We asked people to spread the word. And in less than a month, God brought us a buyer!! And he brought us a private buyer who paid what we were hoping to get!! Dealerships had offered us much less.
|I really loved this car!!! So long Corolla!|
I had been praying that God would make it obvious that He was orchestrating us getting another car for our family. He began with bringing a young girl to us via Craigslist who had gotten into an accident (with a Corolla that was a year older than ours) and still had a loan. The loan officers gave her certain parameters for her purchase of a replacement. She had a rental car for just a few more days. And our car fit all the loan requirements as well as her wishes.
|Bye Corolla - we'll miss you!|
I'm also quite excited to see how the Lord will bring us the right van for our family. We are still trying to decide which "perks" are most important. Any of you moms out there have any advice on your favorite things on your family vehicle (doesn't have to be a van)...and possibly things you wish you did have and why?? Ri has requested a blue van with a tv. Not sure if we will be able to pull through for her on that but guess we will see what God decides to do for us. :)
