Our new cars!

March 4th, 2014

I haven't written for a while because not much was going on.  We mostly did a bunch of paperwork and took Lady Loo to and from school and put the boys down for nap.  Not much you can do when your day is taken up with school schedules and nap schedules. 

Today we have some fun news!!!  We FINALLY have a new car!

 It's another minivan...boo...but we wanted to have enough seats for company when they come to visit.  The nice thing about base is that they check the car for you for $25 to make sure nothing is wrong with it.  We are trying to avoid another lemon.  I haven't told that story on the blog...but I assure you...it's a doozy.  We ended up buying 2 cars from the same couple.  They actually buy cars from Japanese auctions after the cars didn't pass the emission standards, and then they sell them on base.  We have a much less restrictive emissions standard than the Japanese do.  So we got a Mazda MPV and a Nissan March . 

In our new ride!

The March needed a new heater system so we won't get to have it for a while.  We are SO thankful that they saw that in the base inspection!  Some more good news....we move into our house tomorrow!!!!  I CAN'T WAIT!!!  The Naval Lodge is closing in on us all and we are about to freak the freak out!!!!
