I didn't realize how reluctant I can be to change until we sold our van. I had a really hard time with it. Rather than be excited I was sullen. Even thought having a larger vehicle is what I wanted, I struggled with letting go of the old. (As a side note, I cried the day we traded in our last vehicle for the caravan!) Here we are the day someone else drove off in our van.

Now, I have to admit that I LOVE my new van. I feel like I have so much more control of the things I want to do with my children. For example, just the other day Sammy had a few girls over for her birthday and I was able to have everyone in the car. I felt so good when I pulled up to our house and NINE children piled out of the van. I have already used it to car pool with two other families for a field trip. Other than being white (not my first choice) it is practically perfect! The kids are actually inside watching a movie when I took this picture! Parking isn't even that big of a deal for me... I just have to be careful!!

I have also wanted one of these stickers for my car forEVER! Deric got this one for me for my birthday!! Now everyone knows when the Everitt's are on the road! (maybe that is a bad thing?!)
