I actually love spring cleaning. Heaven knows I do not enjoy dusting, or any other type of cleaning, but I do love clearing out items which are no longer of use in the home.
The van is completely filled with items from the basement and attic. I cannot believe just how much there is. When I leave the house in an hour, I will drop these items off at Goodwill.
At 1 PM, I will pick up Cody and Cooper, two brothers who are a part of the Fairmont high school wrestling team. The wrestling team has a great fundraising program, Rent A Wrestler. This is a fantastic opportunity to help young athletes raise money for camp, and to get some assistance around the house. Cody and Cooper arrived here a year ago, along with the Josh Parrett, now in college, to move entertainment units, my old piano, and clean all the woodwork on the lower floor. The brothers have been back several times to assist me. I highly recommend acquiring Cody and Cooper for any chores you need completed around your home!

It is strange to see some things loaded in the van. Some of the items were acquired when we first moved into this home to accommodate all the adopted sons, and foster sons, who lived here the past 13 years. However, a new chapter has begun, just as a new chapter has begun for each son as they venture further into adulthood.
Now, onto more items on my list.
