Sometimes, God chooses to make changes or work situations out in the Franco household with something close to lightning speed.
Case in point: Within a two-week period ending today, He put it on our hearts to sell our Mazda 6, donate our old Montero SUV, and buy a Honda Odyssey. And as of today we’ve done all three of those.
We identified a person to donate the Montero to on Monday morning;
The Mazda 6 sold on Friday afternoon;
And we drove to Baton Rouge on Friday night to buy a beautiful Honda Odyssey on Saturday morning.
God has provided so well for us, and we are humbled and grateful. We just paid off our Mazda 6 and we were able to get a little more for the car than we paid for the van, which works out really well financially for us. We are still waiting on God to provide us with a reliable, inexpensive little car to take Michael to and from work and meetings, but we have a couple of doors that seem to be opening for us on that point as well!
It’s been an exciting week to say the least. 🙂
Below are some pics of our beautiful new Swagger Wagon. It is a 2004 light blue Honda Odyssey with leather seats, heated seats, automatic open and close doors, a DVD player with a remote and two headsets, numerous fun buttons that do all kinds of neat things, and the amazing move-chairs-around-and-fold-the-seats-and-store-things capabilities of a transformer (those alien robot things from the cartoon and the movie a while back with Shia Lebeouf).
P.S. If you don’t get the Swagger Wagon reference, it’s probably because you haven’t had the unforgettable pleasure of viewing the following YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql-N3F1FhW4. Enjoy 🙂
Hilarious advert. Why don't we have a Swagger Wagon in the UK!!

We are sad to see you go. We hope that your family rejoins our ranks some day!
