I also encouraged them to bring a small item that would represent who they are today (for instance one girl wore a headband about 6.5 days a week this school-year whilst she was growing out her bangs: she brought a headband).
Each girl had her own set of info note cards, inserted into her envelope with her name and the current date on the front.
At the time of high school graduation (five years from now), we plan to get together and (with a can-opener) open the time capsule and remember the good old times, while also evaluating on how we have done in accomplishing our goals and laughing at some silliness.
I can't wait...!!
The next five years will bring so much change for these girls....
We will open our capsules at High School Graduation 2020, as five of our girls will graduate then and one in 2021 (I will save her envelope for one year for her).
This was a super fun activity that will bring back some fabulous memories five years from now. These girls will have changed so much from now. I hope they appreciate their old selves, as I sure love them now and thoroughly enjoy their company, as I'm sure I will then too. I am so appreciative of my opportunity to get to spend time with these girls a couple of times a week.
