Back to school!

*UPDATE: Everything went well on his first day. He complained a little bit on our way to the school, but once there, with all the big mess the teacher and little friends made when meeting him, he smiled and went ahead, all ok. He's a brave little guy when he needs to be! :o)
After 18 days of itching, Lucas finally went back to school this afternoon! He looks all confident here, but actually he didn't want to go back, poor cutie. Last night before sleeping, he cried, saying he would miss home and us, and it took me some time to calm him down, after a looooong talk and lots of hugs.

What made him feel safer was that he was with his sword of courage, and also a bull's eye and a tiny prim cat in his jeans' pocket. He said he would like to feel them ove the jeans if he felt bad. His teacher is a lovely woman who really care about the little kids in his class, and it also helped him a lot, as well as having a little friend back a few days earlier who was also with chickenpox. They could exchange experiences! :o)

Good luck. Lucas.

Poor Lucas. Once he stopped feeling ill, he's bound to have enjoyed being home with you. These things he can carry with him will make him more secure, and he'll soon be sad to leave school and all his friends!

Oh, that had to be hard for him, after being home for so long! I hope he had a great day once he got there!

Aww. I know the feeling. I did the same things when I was younger. I hope he had a good time at school though.

Oh! Poor sweet Lucas! I can see why it would be hard for him to go back, after having so much family time. I hope his friends and teacher helped him feel happier about going back. Sounds like Mom did a good job the night before, with your long talk and many hugs. ;-)
