Remember in my last post, where I said goodbye to my mini van? Well we replaced it! Not with another mini van because honestly, we didn't really find any in the price range we were looking for. We are not the most financially responsible people, lol, so we are very proud of ourselves for determining what we could afford each month (we haven't a car payment since 2010, so this was a killer to figure out!), and sticking to that.
So what'd we get?
It's a 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Veeeery different than a mini van, lol. We've never owned an SUV before, but we are really enjoying this one so far. We knew we couldn't get a sedan or anything because it would be too small. We looked at a Dodge Journey, which is like a crossover (between SUV and van), but we couldn't get the payments for that in our price range. As it turns out, that was a good thing. The boys love this, and so do the hubs and I.
Last week went well. My mom came up for the week, so we enjoyed the visiting with her. This week the boys will plug away at some of their summer stuff they are working on. Bailey is working on online algebra (getting ready for high school math...gulp!) and Braeden is working on handwriting. Again, lol. I swear...that child hates holding a pen/pencil!
In the afternoons, they will be working on planting a garden! The hubs has been wanting to do this with them for a while, so today they are going to buy seeds, soil, planters (for herbs and such), etc. He is more excited than they are, lol. I'm sure there will some good schooling going on too, science about plants and all. :)
Signing off to spend this beautiful Sunday with my family now...wishing a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, with a special wish for my own dad, and the hubs!
