Okay, in my defense, I am rarely in my van without Sophie and car washes freak her out. Since it is the dead of winter I am not inclined to drag out the hose, soap, sponge and bucket.That being said, If you are going to have a dirty car you might as well make the most of it. Elijah took the opportunity to use the dirt to create a family portrait. I laughed out loud when I went to the driveway and discovered it! I'll have a clean car (a zippy little sports car...not a minivan) when my kids are grown.
