I've just got a 91 Ford Laser. Big enough for now but won't be for long. But she's dirt cheap to run so we will keep her for when it's just me, hubby and the 2 little ones during the week.

Hubby has a 1990 Mercedes Benz 300E which is nice and roomy but, not enough room for 6. We are seriously thinking about selling that and looking for a Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon that can seat 6. Unfortunately they are not easy to come by now so our other option is a Nissan El Grand mini van.

When we went up to being a family of six, we bought a Dodge Grand Caravan. We'll still have enough room as a family of seven - but just barely, and it'll be tight. We're thinking of getting a Ford Transit, or a passenger van (holding 12) in the near future. We even discussed buying a church small bus as it would be easy to tend to the kids on the road, seeing that we regularly drive 28 hours (round trip) to visit family a few times a year, lol. We'll see how long we can manage with just the van though for now.

We drive a Vauxhall zafiria atm but since ds 5 was born it's been too small and she had a second car for awhile though that died so we are trying to sort a 9 seater but they can be harder to come by in the uk 🇬🇧 Esp secondhand without it being an ex taxi and having stupid high miles on it

Yay! Love this group!

We are due with number 9 pretty soon. Would love to have more. We just let God decide when and how many kids we have.

We currently drive a 15 passenger van for the last couple years. We grew out of our minivan and decided to get the biggest one we could find so we wouldn't have to upgrade any time soon.

Definitely not supermum lol, only by the grace of God. But thank you
My house is actually pretty quiet. We homeschool which is a busy part of my day usually, but they are done for the summer. So now it's just a lot of them doing their chores, playing outside, or playing games. It's nice to be able to work their homeschool schedule around whatever I want. And being 9 months pregnant it was nice to be done for the next couple months.

He only get his three kids every other weekend though so perhaps just have to take both cars. I drive a toyota prius and unless my eldest sitw up front, i have no idea hoe id get four in there. He will be 7 in sept. Idk what the front seat laws are
