I pulled this little treasure from the trash the other day. In Japan, the elementary kids all have these adorable, indestructible bags, in lots of different colors. I saw them while shopping, and they come with a pretty hefty price tag (around $40), so when I saw this cute red one in the trash the other day I saved it from a landfill fate.
Obviously Eleanor is far too young for a backpack, but because it is so sturdy it works great as a place to put some of her books. She's recently become enamored with putting things in bags or boxes, so this is perfect.
She loves to sit in her little (salvaged) chair and read her books, especially the Little People book that the McKneely family gave her for her birthday (Thanks! It's a big hit).
She also recently learned to fold her arms. She does it all the time...except when it's time to pray. Oh well, it'll come soon enough.
