Bob left bright and early for Oxnard California. It's a 17 hour drive but he couldn't fly down because he had to have HIS tools there. Apparently borrowing somebody else's tools is right up there with sharing a strangers toothbrush!
Unfortunately this isn't going to be a real quick trip, a big repair job that could take a couple of weeks. He was originally hoping to be back by the 25th but has already started to prepare me that it looks like that may be a tad unrealistic. So I guess we'll see him when we see him!
Did Kendra cry? of course!! The girls and I were in the car heading over to see the sheep...just a quick 20 minute thing, and Bob was outside packing up his truck. She saw him packing up and the waterworks started. We were at the end of the driveway and had to back up so that she could go running over to daddy and hug him for awhile instead. The look he shot me over the top of her head was a desperate plea for help that was actually quite comical!
