Pinewood Derby




Haydens 2nd pinewood derby was last night. He had a hard time when his car didnt get in 1st place and then he just sat there mooping when it wasn't his turn to race. This was my first car to make. We had forgotten about the pinewood derby and when we got an email 2 days before I asked Shawn to help him make it and he wouldnt so I got out the hand saw and went to town. It wasn't to hard but I don't know the tricks of making your car go fast so we didnt place at all. Hayden got the Best Flame award which was thanks to Shawn since he painted it.

Wow! I didn't know you'd made it, Janet! I'm so impressed . . . I told Greg long ago I was going to have NOTHING to do with it, partly because I thought it was a nice father-son thing, and partly because I had a feeling I'd ruin it if I touched it. (; You did a great job! What a nice mom! Shawn did some pretty nice flames on it, too!

It was fun getting to hang out in nursery together today! (:

ok... wow.. where does a guy make a comment about the pictures like three pages above. This is the first opportuity I see that one can make a comment. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is 1) I'm very impressed as to how updated your blog is... and 2) you need to take the pictures of Shawn and I in our bathing suits out of your little embarrasing pack of photos!

Janet you are getting so handy! We had our pinewood derby a last week -- not that we went since we don't have any boys. But they set it up while we were there doing activity days. It looks like a lot of fun.
