6 kids' stuff

So, I had 6 kids. I have the stuff that goes with 6 kids. TOYS! Unfortunately nobody plays with the toys much anymore. Admittedly some of those 6 kids are no longer kids, 4 of them. They did not take their Lego with them. Nor their stuffed animals. Brian I can understand but what about the other 3? Roger would like a place to put his rock climbing stuff. Camping stuff, Bicycling stuff. Not to mention my WOOL, and quilting and now I've started to accumulate yarn for knitting...
So I started cleaning out heart box, a huge plywood bin some one made that I could put all 6 kids in...not really but almost. It was full of stuffies. I kept 2 and the rest are in the trunk for Goodwill. My 12 year old had no trouble giving up 'Little Bear', I did.

Haha! Well good for you! I know Christina got rid of all her stuffed animals, a closet full, a few years ago and even as an adult she was still attached to them. She kept telling herself over and over again, they were going to another kid, they were going to another kid. Does she miss them now? Nope. Btw, I found another lego-knockoff-thing piece again. I'll send you a list here soon of what I've got. I've not bothered yet because I know I'll keep finding things for a while. :)
