The time has come in our season of life where we need a larger vehicle and I really am not excited about this change. I love my Jetta. So, the next step up in vehicles is a 7 seater mini van or SUV...but all I can think about is when the boys are older we're just going to need an even bigger vehicle and what if we want someone to ride with us, we'd only have one extra seat. Oh, the predicament! Here is what most of my friends end up buying in this situation....
Now I don't want to upset anyone who has one of these, but I hate them and yes I have driven one. They are just too bulky and too long. And really we don't need 15 seats. Plus for the millage it gets we could drive around two Jettas and still average 10mpg better, at least, than one of these. Anyhoo... here is Josh's solution to this here quandary.....
The Dodge Sprinter 12 passenger conversion van. It gets an average of 22mpg and is a lot smaller and better designed than the average American conversion van. Anyone have any input on this? Know of an even better vehicle out there for a family of 6?
So....What Would You Drive?

We've been sooo busy lately...Soccer, Home School, Church, College, ETC...

Just wanted to say we're all doing good and show some pictures off...

Gabriel and this other boy both wanted to be goalie and everytime the other team got the ball they both ran towards the goal and left the other boy to play defense all alone....LOL

The other day I got bored and made this cake. We had a chocolate cake mix, but no frosting and me being the sugar adict that I am... got adventurous and made my own. It has choc. fudge on top and buttercream in the middle. It ended up tasting like a giant hostess cupcake....yummy!!! Lets just say it did not look this pretty for very long. We all had a slice after our dinner and then after the kids went to bed, Josh and I just dug in w/ a fork. I think I had some for breakfast the next day....Man I should not make cakes....

The last few days the weather has been sooo nice. A scourching 60+ degrees and I couldn't stand staying inside all day any longer. So, my friend Tara invited us over to run and play at her house. We all enjoyed it so much. They had a huge play structure, a sand box and lots of room to run. The boys even flew their kites, as the wind was starting to pick up. All the moms hung out, chatted and sipped coffee. Such a wonderful time. I can't wait until I have my own yard to do that in...Someday, right?

Oh and check out the kiddos' pages for more pics and other happenings around here :o)
