Mother of Boys

Pinewood Derby

Today was a big day for our family. Davis earned his Bear Scout, yeah! Here he is pinning the Mom pin on my collar.

It was also the Pinewood Derby. Davis drew a picture of the car he wanted and Jason realized that it looked just like the Speed Racer car! We did our best and here’s how it turned out.

Ready, Set, Go!

He won the ‘Most Futuristic Award’ and 1st Place!! No joke. Not only 1st place but he broke a track record. {{dumb-founded}} Who knew? No one was more surprised than Jason and me.

After he won, I felt a little silly because Laurie M. and I were hamming it up by trash talking to each other all night. Her son and mine had each won all 3 races but we didn’t actually race each other. So when her son won 2nd place – I just assumed we got 4th or something. We were shocked. Great Job Sweetie!
