Pinewood Derby Time

Earlier this week we got the opportunity to go watch & compete in the Pinewood Derby car races for the cub scouts I am in charge of. We brought the whole family to watch the races, but it was apparent after only a few minutes that it wasn't going to be practical for the twins to stay, they just wanted to walk toward the track, so Cory took them home & left Phoebs & I to do the cheering
Phoebe loved the races, she sat in the front row and clapped & clapped as the cars raced down the track. She even got to press the start button once which was a real highlight for her!
Our 4 scouts did excellent! They took 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 7th place; above the1st and 3rd place cars are pictured. Phoebe did very well watching the many heats of car races; she was even more attentive and patient than I became as the races drug on and on. Good thing for me it's only once a year.
