We're expecting a baby in May and found out that it will be a boy. Every expense is on hold until we've paid for the baby and bought a mini-van. One nice thing is that we don't really need a minivan for a while. With the baby coming right at the end of school, and P able to give G rides to school, we're good until September, or even later. Even traveling to G-ville, we may as well take 2 cars. The fuel efficiency of our 2 cars is about the same as a van. Whenever I see someone driving a big vehicle by themselves, I'm like "what the?" We're misers, P and I. Going to a van is hard to swallow. But the kids will love it.
