So, over the years as the sets were built and then taken apart to make something new they have all ended up in this catch-all Rubbermaid container which has always been located under the boys' bunk beds. (Actually, this is container #3 - the first two fell to pieces over time!) This was a fine system, and the boys even enjoyed the challenge of finding just the piece they were looking for in this huge collection, but it was time for a change.
(At least in my summer-cleaning-frenzy mind it was.)
Ahhhhhh.....the glorious order of it all! We have bins for flat bricks, narrow bricks, and wide bricks; drawers for platforms, arches, roofing materials, boats and animals; compartments for flags, flames, steering wheels, hooks, joints, and propellers; small drawers for tools, gear, discs, weapons and more; and last but definitely not least, a special wire basket for those beloved "Lego guys!"
(And all of their detached limbs, little yellow hands, and decapitated heads.)
So how long do you think this will last? And would anyone be able to relate to my hesitancy to ever let them play with Legos again now that they look so beautiful in their respective bins? I'm sure this will be yet another sanctification through surrender opportunity.
God likes order though, right?
(Kory missed out on all of the organizing into bins and drawers which included the complete cleaning and rearranging of their bedroom, as he is on his camping trip to Acadia National Park and Soul Fest with Robert. Cooper can't wait to be the first to give him a tour of their cool new pad - new comforters and everything! Did I mention the cleaning frenzy? Yeah.)
