A couple weeks before school get out Victoria's backpack's zipper broke.
It turns out most stores don't really sell backpacks year round.
Not the kind a seven year old year wants anyway.
So she found a small one Aunt Molly gave her for Christmas a couple years ago and called it good.
I went to throw out the old one and it seemed heavy even though I had emptied it myself.
I opened the front pocket and it was full of rocks.
If you know my girl, it's not that unusual.
She'll pick up a rock here and there.
Apparently she's been doing that all through first grade.
