For all of the grand new toys that one can buy these days it is nice to see Zane having fun with recycled toys. This plastic school bench was rescued from the dump last year and he’s almost always using it. I also found a little sand strainer and spinner thing and now that the weather is nicer he’s outside playing with it regularly. Not to mention all of the great hand-me-downs from Tyler and Dana and others. There’s a local, non-profit second-hand store in town that we often donate things to, but they are also a good place to check before going off to the store to buy something.
