We've spent the last two days gathering stuff from the garage, boxing it and getting it out in front for the Salvation Army to pick up in the morning. Finally we can walk through the laundry room without climbing over boxes.
Some of what we're giving away are things that Alex outgrew years ago. He's busy finishing his video senior project, so there wasn't much in the way of Father's Day festivities, but one thing I did seemed to resonate with the theme of the day. I carefully washed a set of Alex's Duplos and sealed them away in their original container, like a time capsule. We'll unseal the box in a decade or two and watch our first grandchild play.
