In with the New-ish

We replaced Fred this week. The girls haven’t named the new car, so for now it’s just the new car: a 2008 Kia Spectra.

You can see the van in the background. Turns out it was a broken hose. The mechanic down the street made a house call (to where it broke down) and had it ready before lunch the day after we got back from Texas. So we are back to having two working cars once again and are thankful.

The new car’s maiden voyage was a quick 800 mile round trip to Mississippi to take Jenna and Lauren to camp. The gas mileage was far better than advertised (24/30) at 38 mpg. That was a pleasant surprise.
