Packing Up On Covington-Gettysburg Road, Ohio

July 16, we left home, did a little house item shopping in Wichita and made it to eastern Kansas for the night. Wednesday we arrived at Mom & Dad's at suppertime. After Mom & I returned from our quick weekend in Orlando, we dug in to cleaning out the house! Shannon and Riley helped Dad in the barn, while I helped Mom in the house. We started upstairs in one of the storage closets. Annie had labels for piles: keep, garage sale, Goodwill, trash, charity, family, etc. The children were mostly on their own while the adults sorted, boxed, carried, and burned.
