So we've been looking for a vehicle for Andrew, and yesterday Mike found one. Ten years old but only 42,000 miles! Toyota Tacoma, dark green, new tires, local car, no engine problems, lockable cover over the back end, reasonable price. Not four doors but the rest of it was about too good to pass up. When I got home from school he asked me what I thought and I told him to go ahead and get it. Right then the phone rang - the salesman was calling - the owner thought he should sell it to us and dropped the price $600!

So we went to Andrew's play last night and took the truck along. Didn't tell him until afterward - asked him to walk us out to the car. And there it was. He was thrilled - hugged us, ML, Grandma and Papa - anybody in sight. It was a joyous occasion.

Will get pictures as soon as he comes home in it.

This mama is happy this morning.
