Chouteau Elementary School unsealed a time capsule buried in 2007

CHOUTEAU, Okla. - It was a meaningful day in Chouteau where dozens of high schoolers uncovered a time capsule they buried in 2007.

With the help of a backhoe, they removed a bell structure that had covered the plastic bin of memories for years.

"Wyatt, 2007. Favorite place to eat Golden Corral. I think that was the last time I ate there," reads high school senior Wyatt Cornelius from a list of favorite things he wrote to his future self when he was in second grade.

Eleven years later, these seniors at Chouteau High School are having fun seeing how much their interests have changed or stayed the same.

"I loved strawberries and vanilla ice cream, still my favorite," said Hannah Tweed. 

While Cornelius says red is still his favorite color.

Now, his younger brother at Chouteau Elementary School gets to have the same chance.

"This is a record of my life April 23, 2018," reads Cornelius, "Name Toby Ward. Age 9."

Sixty second graders filled the box with letters and reburied the time capsule, so they can unseal it when they're in high school.
