Meredith and I went on a pilgrimage today that took us officially from cute young married people to full blown grown-ups all in the span of about 4 hours.
All that is to say that I am now the proud owner of a…wait for it…a MINIVAN! As I signed the papers I think I heard the death rattle of the last bit of cool that has been hanging on inside of me. But I do have to say that I have wanted a minivan for a long time now. As a youth pastor of a church without a bus I am constantly needing vehicles that have multiple seats. So now finally I can take 6 youth with me somewhere! You would be amazed at how many times I have needed just those 2 extra seats.
As for the choice of van I don’t exactly know how we ended up with what we did. If you have heard of a Chevy Uplander you have more knowledge of it than I did when I woke up this morning. But the deal was good, and the lovely Mrs. Sumer Analytical Sunshine helped out with some research so we went ahead and picked it up.
I am excited, but man do I feel old.
