The Moodymobile

Some people say that your vehicle reflects who you are as a person. It describes you as being sporty, wild, elegant, studious, or even, wealthy. That may or may not be true, but my van does define my season of life.
Our big white van has been faithfully transporting our family since Judson was born. Yes, child number 6. The one that kicked us out of the minivan. Ha! He was born in 2003. The van was made in 2001. So, yes, that is a lot of years and miles added. We have even added one more child and, no, we don't plan to fill it to the 12 passenger limit. :)
Due to having this Moodymobile (as one sweet friend described it) for many years, Dan has become quite the mechanic. He has done everything from minor repairs to replacing many parts of the engine. He has learned so much on Youtube and has saved our family thousands of dollars by doing this. Yes, it can cost some sanity, blood, sweat and tears, but it has been worth it in the long run.
Dan just replaced the whole the air conditioning system last week after being without it for a year. So thankful!! Now we can drive our Moodymobile in comfort!
