Our New Ride

We decided it was time and bought a wheelchair accessible van last month. It has finished being converted and now we are just waiting on delivery. Hopefully it will be here within the next 2 weeks. My back is achy from lifting Waverly in and out of our van. And especially lifting her wheelchair in and out of the back of the van. We just ordered her a new wheelchair which is much bulkier and weighs almost 100 lbs. It will be a wonderfully comfortable fit for Wavey, but I knew I could no longer lift it. 

It is a huge expense, but it was time. We needed a second car anyway. Our new van will accommodate 2 wheelchairs. For now, Oliver can sit in a seat with Waverly in her wheelchair beside him.

I am strangely excited for the new van's arrival. My back is already looking forward to limited lifting. I will take pictures of the kids inside once it *finally* arrives.
