In Defense of Cleaning Out the Van... Transitasaurs

Another school year another clean out? 


I'm not 100% sure when the van was totally cleaned out but it was some time last year. Lee got the van cleaned for me last year but this year it wasn't in the works plus a little blood, sweat and tears (okay not the first one) never hurt anyone. 

Schools starts Tuesday so Sunday afternoon was do or die. I didn't really consider it work, it was more like sacrifice and penance. I cannot imagine how many loadings and unloading have happened in the van over the course of the last year. 

MANY.

Back during the funk of 2018, the van was Lysoled out but taking carseat in and out is a massive pain in the neck. 

In defense of taking carseats out... 



and cleaning them. All the sand and food and git and grim and stickers and stuff. It really makes me want to clean these things more often because it never ceases to amaze me the amount of junk these things collect. 



It is kind of gross but taking them in and out is a super hassle - almost as bad as changing the sheets on the bunk bed (but I promise those are cleaned more than once a year). 


E was my harder worker out in the humidity. We stripped the carseats, washed the padding, vacuuming the van, wiped some surfaces and put everything back together. 

Can you tell we are in between seasons.... fall soccer on the left and hanging on to summer and the pool on your right?

Everyone had new assigned seats in the fresh clean van, which I'm sure the clean won't last too long but it was good while it lasted. I really feel A. blessed to need a van this size, B. blessed we have a van this size, C. want to bless other families with this van so first and foremost I need to be a good steward of it and part of that is keeping it clean. 

Here's to another round of seatings... I'll keep you posted on the commentary even though it doesn't matter because all decisions are final and commentary will be taken (as it always is) but not taken into consideration.
