Time Capsule of Second Grade

When you have a young child in America from time to time you clean out their backpack. I thought this photo encompassed exactly what a second grade girl in America would collect - everything from an emoji coin purse, to a few stuffed animals clipped to her backpack, pencils, scraps of paper, tiny treasures of earth and stars. A little time capsule of a moment in her life she will never have again. And a moment I will treasure always.
