Pinewood Derby Race

This past Saturday was the Pinewood Derby Race. Oh my, the boys were so excited. In fact, Jacob had a difficult time sleeping the night before! Lots of hard work went into the completion of their cars. We are very proud to say that they did MOST of the work (and it was obvious that that wasn't the case for most of the cars entered into the race!). Both Blake and Jacob did very well on their individual heats- they each had four races with their cars. Jacob consistantly placed 2nd, while Blake one a first place blue ribbon for one of his heats. Unfortunately, they did not score fast enough to bring home a trophy, but they did not seem to mind as they had so much fun watching their cars.

MaKenna did very well during the whole race (we were there for 2.5 hours). She was happy to watch the cars go by as well as cheer on the racers. Occasionally, she would hop from lap to lap and of course, eat.

There were many more races that took place over the course of the weekend. Lots of plans and ideas are in the works for next years race as well!
