Lucas had a very good friend throughout Kindy and Reception called Gilbert. Unfortunately his family decided to return to the UK about 2 1/2 years ago.
It was a real shame, we missed them lots and Lucas spoke about Gilbert for a very long time after they left.
This year, they've come back!
First Gilbert's dad came already at the start of this school year, and resumed his old job at school - and now the rest of the family has finally followed and Gilbert have slotted right back in Lucas' year group.
Lucas told me the other day, right out of the blue:
-"It's really nice to have Gilby back. He's gotten really funny!"
He was here today on a play date, and the two of them had so much fun together. Here's Lucas, and Gilbert - on his toes:
Here are a few photos from their International Day in Kindy (back in November 2007), when they first became friends:
