Going, Going, Gone! more ways than one!

Last weekend, my mom, sister Lisa, nephew Tyler and cousin Kelli all came to help me have a garage sale. We got rid of so much stuff, and have a ton left over to take to Goodwill! It was a little sad, seeing all of our baby items go! We've had the high chair for over 8 years now - it's a part of my kids' childhood! It did make it better that I got a little cash, and that I know new babies will love our stuff! One soon-to-be first time grandma cleaned me out! She left our house with a bouncer, 2 exersaucers, a baby swing and various toys. Hope her new baby enjoys it!

Speaking of "going, going, gone", so is Megan! While my family was here, my sister decided that it was high time that Meg learned to ride her bike without training wheels. Truthfully, it probably was (she is 8, after all) but we never really pushed it. Megan is pretty timid, and she doesn't ride her bike all that often, so when she turned us down last summer (to try and teach her) she was scared and said no. Lisa wasn't taking no for an answer, and within one afternoon (and a couple of bruised up legs), Meg was off!
Thanks for helping us out, guys! With Kevin out of town that week, I couldn't have done it without you!

Great job, Megan!

I'm sure you feel so much "lighter" after your garage sale! I know I did!

the million dollar question is....has she gone outside to ride the bike at all since I left? I hope so!!!!
