Spring cleaning this weekend. The boys are going through their toy bins to see what can be thrown out ("to make room for new stuff," as we've learned to position it).
Samuel is like his mom: he doesn't like to get rid of anything that could possibly be used at some point over the next 50 years, in some curcumstance, no matter how arcane or unlikely.
The boys held a sidewalk sale this afternoon. They were squabbling a little over pricing; Ethan had an inflated sense of the value of things, which drove Samuel crazy. They settled on 25 cents for any toy, or 5 for a dollar. They were very excited when they got their first sale--a Rubik's Cube that was missing one green tile, for which the buyer gave them a dollar and told them to keep the change.
In all, they sold 3 toys and netted $1.50. The remaining 25 toys are back in the apartment.
