Lego organization project

The kids and I have spent this entire week doing a "clean sweep" of our house. So far, we have cleaned out the garage and a big part of the basement. We still have A LOT left to do.

One of our big projects in the basement was organizing the boys' Lego collection.

They had started using their old train table to build their creations. But it didn't take long to fill up the table.

Their other projects were spread throughout the house in various parts and pieces.

For a quick fix that would cost zero dollars, I remembered I had these shelves in my office. I used to take them to display my Discovery Toys at trade shows.

But we needed a way to keep the small parts from falling through the holes. Let's see? Where could we get some big pieces of construction paper? The Lego boxes!

After I cut the boxes to the right size, they were nice and sturdy and stayed in place on their own. Then, we cleaned off the table and placed their finished creations on the shelves.

We put all the leftover parts and pieces together in a clear bin on one of the shelves.

Clearly, the Lego people were MUCH happier!

Now the boys have a lot more room to play!

My new hobby

I have written several blog posts the last year about how I have been looking into buying a nicer camera. The day finally arrived.

I can't believe how much fun I have been having playing with the camera and all of its settings.

Here are some of my favorite photos so far.
