Travels: 16 miles driving around (7899 total miles)
Accommodations: Continued at Bartlesville, OK

After breakfast, Kourtney picked up the younger two kids and me and we headed to the YMCA to work out while the kids went to childcare (the YMCA is very nice here – good equipment, good classes, a pool, an inside track, and $49 a month including childcare). It was nice working out again – I have worked out more in the past two weeks than my entire trip combined.

After, we ran some errands. A deposit at the bank where the teller knows her name (like County Commerce in Ventura), and she saw her Realtor in the drive-through (they see people everywhere they go – small town feel). Then, we went through the covered drive-through cleaners, dropped off a CD at a friend’s house, and picked up some fresh fruit and veggies at a couple roadside stands, then back to the Craig’s house for lunch.

While we were out, Dave was able to observe another of Kyle’s deliveries – a little girl born to a young couple.

After lunch, Mason, Marin, and Ava Kate took naps and the other three did some painting and coloring. After naps, the kids played outside for awhile – on the “quad”, scooters, Red Light Green Light, and such. I got to sneak in painting my nails and reading a chapter in Olive Kitteridge.

For dinner we enjoyed pork chops with BBQ sauce and lemon, baked okra/onion/tomato, whole wheat biscuits, and a glass of red wine.

Just a few minutes before dinner, Dave got a call from Kyle and was able to observe another delivery – this one a C-section. There were a couple minor complications as well, so Dave got to see Kyle deal with those.

Baths, trailer, bed.
