Guess what's sitting out in our driveway???

And who would have thought I would be so excited about driving a 15 passenger van?? But I am!! No more climbing over 3 rows of seats to buckle in seven kids for me baby! Thank you God for answering our prayer!! (and thank you to all of you who were helping us search!) We found this awesome Chevy Express that was gently used locally on Craigslist. The people selling it were awesome and didn't have a need for it anymore. We got a GREAT deal too! It was so fun driving to church today all together in one vehicle and let me tell you-there were some cute faces smiling back at me in that rearview mirror today!

God is so good. I too have been praying for you to find this van. When I saw that your prayers were answered I could only jump for joy for you and your family. Thanks for sharing the great news

Yeah! From a driver of a 12 passenger van, watch the curbs with the back tires. :) Enjoy.

Hey, it's just like mine--same color and everything. You have more people filling it than I do right now, though. ;-)

Jehovah Jireh- He IS our provider!
What a beautiful picture!
I would love to take a ride in that van with you and the kids....I'm sure it is never silent!
Children are a blessing from the Lord, an inheritance from HIM.

Love you

Ok well I've been trying to catch up on your blog...a friend sent me your blog...and I am in love already!

I had to comment about your new van. I find it almost hilarious! We are foster parents also, and we have "only" 5 kids right now but our minivan was so crowded. We also have a new van parked in our driveway--which we also found on Craigslist--for a great deal. Ours is a 12 passenger ford econoline. But man do I know what you mean about everyone in one vehicle! One day I will post about it but for now just had to smile when I read your post. Thanks for sharing your life...and passion for kids. I'm there, babe!! Looking forward to keeping up with your family. Sincerely, Misty Galvin, SD.
