Hey! Bear here.
Mom asked me to let you know that she just couldn’t write a blog today. She left this morning to take Blake to the Pellston airport to go back to Atlanta. Mom only gets to see Blake two weeks a year, and today was the day he had to leave the island. I love Blake a lot because he plays with me, walks me, and sometimes lets me crawl in the bed with him. But mostly I love him just because mom does.
Mom told me that Blake is returning to China in two weeks for the last year of a four-year commitment to the people there. He teaches in a university in China, but he is also working for a higher purpose (you’ll have to ask mom personally about that, if you don’t know what I am talking about). Mom is really, really proud of Blake, and when they left this morning to catch the ferry, I could see she was trying really, really hard not to cry. I don’t think it worked though, because when she got back this afternoon, her eyes were red, and my dad hugged her a lot and patted her back – just like he does me when I feel sad ’cause Maddie stole my favorite toy.
So, anyway, mom asked me to let you know that she’ll be back tomorrow with something happy on the blog, but today she wanted me to just post some pictures of Blake that were her favorites from his two weeks here. I’m gonna go now and put my head in mom’s lap for a while – just to let her know that one of her boys is still right here.
