Pine Wood Derby


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. :/
