Pine Wood Derby

Well it's that time of year, our first major scouting event, the pinewood derby. Austin was sooo excited when he got his car, and well, so was Jeremy. They crafted out a design and then got the car all ready, painted it, and lookin HOT for the big derby. Austin picked out the colors, and I added some the the decals (aka rub ons) so I was helpful in the design department. The night of the race, Austin was super excited. The car didn't come in first, but it didn't come in last either, so that was good. There were 4 heats and then the last qualifying race. Afterwards, all the big dads got to race their own, or their sons cars, for some fun of their own. I have to say it was pretty cool to watch all the cars and see how each one turned out so differently...
