6 months later I found out I was pregnant with Mary...and that same month Jason quit the church to pursue youth apologetics with the Apologetics Resource Center. Life Changed...
Than Mary finally got here and we rode around like this...And several people asked us...what are you going to do about how y'all ride around. And Jason and I were going to ride around like this for as long as Noah's little butt could squeeze in the middle of a booster seat and car seat. Well, of course the story continues...AND, four months ago we found out we were pregnant with #4. And we thought and thought HOW to make our little civic fit us all in...and folks...there was JUST NO WAY! I even told Jason...we will just have to drive separate cars - we don't go that many places ALL together!
But the Lord saw fit to provide. He always does. One Wednesday night a youth pastor at SMI wanted Jason to speak to the youth about missions because they had an upcoming missions conference and he wanted to get the kids thinking about missions. Honestly - I didn't want him to go - our time together has been minimal lately and he wasn't excited about it either because he was just all out exhausted. But he did go and teach and enjoyed it. While there he met Garrick (the General Sales Manager at Serra Honda in Ensley). Well...long story short they got to talking about our ever growing family - our car...and he told us to come see him...and we did - today! And, he gave us a great deal! We were very pleased with him and his staff and our new car! It was all a "God thing" and I think even he can testify to that. So now we can all take a deep breath in our new to us...2004 Honda Odyssey! WHOO HOO!!
The Kids Perspective...Anna and Noah just love it! Noah has been the funniest though. He got up WAY before we did Sat. and looked out the window to see what color it was and then went back to bed. We got the car at night so they couldn't see it good at all. I also heard Noah tell Jason he couldn't "believe our Civic grew up into this!" So I guess we just "grew up"! They are funny! Look at Mary she's even happy about it!! Noah's not laying on her anymore!!
