This year, the boys did their first pinewood derby race. After it was clarified that we weren’t building cars for them to SIT in (yeah, I know, duh), Craig and the boys set in and made the cars. He made a basic shape for the boys, but they filed, shaved, sanded and did most of the decoration details themselves! We didn’t win, but the boys had a great time doing it. I was disappointed in how “nice” some of the other cars were, obviously NOT done by 7 to 9 year olds, but by parents and grandparents.
