new car

We finally got rid of our gas-guzzler. Looking back, we realized that gas prices have doubled in the three years that we have owned it, and if they double again in the next three years, we would be paying an outrageous amount of money each month in gas just to drive it. We already were paying way more than we wanted to. So, we bit the bullet, got over it, etc, and are now the proud owners of a Dodge Grand Caravan. Jacob got to pick out the color, and it has a DVD player, so he's happy about it. Will just wants to face the front, so he can see the DVD player. It was a little daunting to try and do on my own, but I managed to survive unscathed.

Andy is doing pretty good. He hurt his knee playing soccer a few days ago. He said that he went to kick the ball and then go after it, but his cleats stayed and he fell. When he did, he twisted his knee and heard a loud pop. The doctor told him that he had tore or bruised his meniscus, which is the cartlidge in the knee. Andy says that he is fine and that he should be running again soon. He said to send everyone his love.

What color did Jake choose? New cars are exciting and scary (payments).

I know the kids will love the DVD player. I wish mine had one. The boys each have a portable one that they try to remember to take with them, but that is just two more things to keep up with. (Actually, one of them has misplaced-lost-their DVD player.)

Jake chose blue for the car, his favorite color. He kept saying he didn't like the first one we looked at, and finally said that he didn't like it because it was green. So, he and Andy discussed it and decided on blue.
