DS17 had his final game of club soccer yesterday, which was a bit of an emotional milestone, after ten years & an endless amount of practices, games, tournaments, etc. But, that also meant we could clean out a bunch of stuff!

-I've already reached out the our club, and they will buy back his uniform (at a tiny, tiny fraction of the cost), to help new players. I will add in the backpack, which has the same number as the jerseys, so the new player will get a complete set. Found a brand new package of uniform socks, and also added those in as well.

-Went to the "soccer drawer", which has taken up 20% of his dresser for the last ten years, and pulled everything out. Made a large pile to donate, a few things to give away on BN (better matched to specific location + age group, given what's required for club).

-Decided to turn the "soccer drawer" into the "pants drawer", so had DS17 try on all of his pants. Two pair were too small (we're in California, and the teens will go months between pants wearing) & listed those on BN.

-Found his most destroyed pair of soccer cleats, and put those aside for shoe recycling. I'll keep his better pair, as he wants to play intramural in college.

So much stuff out of the house! I will miss the games, but I have 1.5 more years with my other teen, who his his first varsity school game on Friday. When one door closes & all.
