Luca is six.
It's a little hard for me to grasp.
I like to still think of him in his Buzz Lightyear
pajamas, big round belly, holding beloved Woody.
Now he's tall and skinny and
packing Lego guys around in his pockets
Smart, kind, funny and sincere.
He really is becomming such a neat kid.
Other kids all seem to like Luca and want to be around him.
I'm probably most proud of him for that, for just being a good kid.
Whenever I drop the kids off at school I say,
"be a good friend"...and then you hope that some of the things that you
teach them stick and they're not the jerk, teaser or bully at school.
He's welcoming and kind. Its possible that he's the goofy kid in class
but I'll take that any day over a jerk or a bully.
Sometimes he's hard on himself.
frustrated by the things he isn't able to do on his own
or discouraged at not getting something the first time around.
Just keep trying buddy, do your best.
Luca, we love you.
You are such a fun kid to be around.
Six is going to be a great year.
