I am now the proud owner of Lucas' very first love letter! Can you believe it? I can hardly believe my eyes-not only that he wrote it but that he actually gave it to me! I just knew he would tear it up and throw it away or refuse to let me see it let alone let me keep it. He'll kill me one day when he finds out I actually blogged about it but I can't resist. My heart is fluttering with happiness and a little bit of sadness that he's growing up so quickly.
Background: this little girl has been in our lives since Lucas was in 4K. She and Lucas bonded right away and Lucas automatically called her his girlfriend :) For about a year that was the case-just absolutely in love with each other. Lucas eventually became very close to her brother and hangs out her house often. They've all spent an enormous amount of time together. Something you would think would fade but still to this day Lucas blushes when he talks about her. David kept telling him he needed to write her a love letter and even though he said he had told her numerous times that he loved her he said he was going to do it today.
He comes home today and tells me that he wrote it-he said the first thing she wrote back to him was maybe(that's on the other side of the paper-I told ya it took me long enough to get this part loaded) and he wrote her back and told her that wasn't an answer :) Then she wrote back and said not right now. He was fine with it though and said there was another girl in his class he thought was pretty. She still has his heart though :)
I'll cherish this letter forever-it makes me tingle when I read it! The bottom part is her answer.
