Goodbye, "M"

Last Sunday, K and Bandit and I drove up to Samish Island, Washington to drop M off at summer camp.  This is his ninth summer at the same camp (started as a third grader) and his first year as a "Counselor in Training."  He'll be gone a total of three weeks.  We had planned to pick him up for a weekend visit home after the second week, but we ended up picking him up this past weekend instead since all the regular counselors were leaving to attend a Mariners game.  The Mariners are Seattle's Major League Baseball team, and they're in the midst of one of their worst seasons ever.  Bandit was ecstatic to see M walk in the door yesterday!  They are good buddies and Bandit often lays with M while he's playing Xbox downstairs.  K and M are currently en route back up to camp.  We won't see him again until August 21st. 
As dogs aren't allowed on the camp grounds, even while checking in one's child, Bandit had to watch from the car.  "Goodbye, M!"
We saw several deer up on the island
We stopped for a photo op on the way home. Bandit looks a little bit sad. Maybe he's wondering why M's not with us.

Sweet beautiful Bandit just gets prettier and prettier (handsome, I should say) every single day!
Big hugs for you both!

Such exciting times! It's wonderful that he enjoyed camp enough to return as a counselor.
