After years for my dreams of a minivan being thwarted by a burning refrigerator, dying heating system, and other issues, we finally got one this month! I love having SPACE for three car seats, and Lily got a new car seat in honor of the occasion (her old one is still in Mike’s car). Having the car seat in the house was a great opportunity to talk about why kids ride in car seats, and Emma and Johnny enjoyed helping Lily get buckled in safely!
The kids got a second safety lesson when our police station had an open day. They toured the entire station and were fitted with bike helmets, which they got to bring home for free!
