Well whadda ya know? Carter won first place in his Den again at the Pinewood Derby! This year as a Wolf Cub. I think we must have the winning car specs, but we don't want to get too big of an ego just yet - there is some pretty stiff competition as the kids move up a rank! His car was just how he wanted it though, and he loved the process!
He made it to the final heats to determine the overall winner for the day, and came in 5th out of 8 cars. We should have inspected those top cars to see what their secret was for next year, right? ha-ha! Well we accomplished one thing we set out to do, and that was to make sure his wheels didn't fall off at the end of the day like they did last year.
It was a pretty fun-tastic afternoon watching all the boys' excitement at the Derby, we look forward to this event! It was postponed from January because of a storm, so to say they were eager would be an understatement!
Don't let this picture of the boys fool you - it was the ONLY time they were sitting still - I was lucky enough to snap a picture before the chaos began...
And here's the Champ!
