Re: Momma's with 6 or more.

we went straight from my beloved excursion with all the nice trimmings to the 15 passenger e350. we have one seat out to make it easier to buckle all the kiddos in and give me space for groceries etc. we have 6 in car seats- my oldest is 7. eventually hubby wants to put in the sprinter seats, build a cage and then blow off the top, or we will win the lottery and get a sprinter.

We only have 5 (for now ) but our Honda Odyssey has seating for 8. We would be quished for long distances, but for around town and to/from school, church, work, etc. it works just fine and would for 1 more. In fact, we carpool with 2 other kids so we use all 8 seats just about daily.

Re: Momma's with 6 or more.

We bought a new minivan about a year ago that seats 7 and then we found out a month ago that our 1yo foster son is gonna be ours. YAY! So we bought a 12 passenger Ford and I really like it for what it is. You do lose all the fun stuff that the minivan has, but it drives nice, has back up sensors (a must for me), and this weekend when we do respite care for a little guy we won't have to take 2 vehicles to go to church.
We had 3+ft of snow here for a couple months this winter and I don't go anywhere unless the roads are clear so I'm not really worried about winter.

Back online and getting caught up. Thanks for your patience.

We have almost 10 and have a 15 passenger van. Bought it when our 5th was 9m/o. I love it, but now it is getting quite crowded. Once the baby comes we will have to put in the back bench. Then no truck space. We need one of those shuttle type vans that seat 20 or so.
