My children are growing up fast. My daughter is 16 and my boy is alreadyin junior high school. As they get bigger, our house seems to get smaller. So wewant to sell some of our things in a yard sale and give the money to achildren's home.
We have already cleared out a lot of things from our bedrooms. We have decidedto each sell five things that we no longer use. My son was quite sad at first. Althoughhe has not played with his old toys for a long time, he still wanted to keepthem. For example, he has owned a train and railway set since his fourthbirthday, and he played with it almost every week until he was about seven. Andhe did not want to lose his toy monkey; either He slept next to the monkeyevery night when he was a child. My daughter was more understanding althoughshe also felt sad to part with certain toys.
As for me, I did not want to give up my football shirts, but, to behonest; I have not played for a while now. I am getting older, too!
