Our new car

My wonderful, diligent husband did a lot of research and dragged my reluctant self to dealer lots, and now his efforts have paid off: we have bought a new car. Introducing our 2009 Hyundai Elantra:

Our new car

We've mostly been a 1-car family over the years, but Ross will be going to a different school this year, and we needed a second car to make sure we can get him there and back again. (Talk about a spendy school supply item!) Plus, our Jeep is 12 years old -- still running fine, but it doesn't hurt to have something newer, just in case.

Can you believe that he'll be learning to drive this car in 5 years??? Yikes!

Congratulations! It looks very sleek and shiny (and Ross has a gorgeous smile!)

Yes, its a scary thought about our kids driving. My 13 year old has just qualified for his restricted boat license and that's scary enough.
Lovely new car! We recently bought a Suzuki SX4, the first ever NEW car for both myself and my husband. We went four cylinder this time for better fuel economy. Its nice, isn't it, to drive something that's new and with nothing broken yet.
