Pinewood Derby

Wednesday evening brought a very important rite of passage - that's what I hear anyway, as I never experienced this activity - the Pinewood Derby at church. The RA's and GA's brought the heat and it was fun to see their different creations.

What I did not realize is that said Derby would bring out my man's competitive spirit like nothing I've seen since he had to leave the Baylor v. Texas A&M football game due to a nauseous feeling. Bug I digress...

As you can see, he took it a wee bit seriously...


...and, in turn, the girl took it every bit as seriously...


...and, as one might imagine, I was told a hot rod is not considered complete until the flames were applied. Who knew?!?!


Due to someone in our house forgetting that her car was due last week, it wasn't weighted properly so it didn't fare all that well in the speed category...


...but it did garner a 1st place trophy in the design category!


No, her feet have not yet touched the ground. :-)
