There's Thomas (left), all ready to leave for school.
He was so excited about his first day today.
He also wanted to make sure I could see his lunchbox, with his very own lunch packed inside, in the background.
His backpack is as big as he is!
Over on the right, he's sitting at his table.
Only half of the class went today.
Half will go tomorrow, which means Thomas stays home one more day.
Wednesday can't come soon enough for him!
