One day Bobby came across one that we both really liked. It was a 2004, had a DVD player, one owner, and in great condition! And it was only $7500! The only con was the mileage: 144K. Bobby talked to the guy, and we got to know him and he was so excited when he learned that Bobby worked for Dave Ramsey. And it turned out that his wife works at the same hospital as me. Anyways, we started to feel comfortable with this family that we were potential buyers for. BUT we still needed to sell my Montero in order to pay cash for the van. So last Saturday, we took a few pics of the Montero and listed them on Craigslist. No joke, within 7 minutes, we had received 3 emails and one phone call asking about the car. We sold it the next day!! Not only that, we sold it for $150 more than we paid for it a year ago! Craziness!
After the whirlwind of selling our Montero so quickly, we called the Sienna guy and the van was still available. We talked about it and prayed about it and bought it! As much as I was so not into driving a van 1 year ago, I really do like it. It was a major rite of passage for me!Not to mention, it's a tremendous blessing that we were even able to find it at just the right time for our family.
So that's it. A nice long blog about our "new" minivan!Lucas felt like such a big boy in Ava's carseat! Not yet little guy!
