Pinewood Derby 2008!

Once again, it was Pinewood Derby Race time for Ethan. He's had the car for well over a month, but...life got busy, it's Lent...and on Wednesday Ethan came home from school and said "Um...Dad? Do you know the Derby is on Saturday?" Well, Wednesday was midweek and church, Thursday was meetings at church, and Friday was Family Fun Night at the elementary school (a carnival). Ethan and Ronnie worked after school yesterday to get it cut out, shaped and sanded. After Family Fun Night, they gave it a first coat of paint. A few hours later, a second coat went on. Today they did a bit more touch ups, put on the wheels and weights, and they were ready to race at 4 pm!

Ethan gives his car a nice coat of paint.

And we are OFF to the races! Ethan's car is the one with the Lego driver, on the far right. Doesn't it look cool?
Ethan had a strong second place finish!

The hard work paid off with a second place trophy for Ethan, and lots of thanks for his Dad!


A happy boy with his trophy and prize winning car!

Congrats! My oldest participated in the Derby this year and he finished last. But he was such a trooper he just said, "Now, I know what to do next year!"
