Pinewood Derby

It's time for the races! This is our 2nd year participating in the Pinewood Derby at our church. After the fun we had last year, we have all been excited about it. Last year, Kaitlyn chose a ladybug as her design. This time she wanted a carrot. Don't know why, but that's what she wanted.

Here is a close-up of the carrot. Craig put a lot of effort into this car. He wanted to make sure there were grooves in the car just like in a carrot.

You can see the carrot is lined up and ready to race. Just below it is the ladybug that Kaitlyn raced last year. This year, Preston is racing it.

Preston and Kaitlyn are eager for the racing to begin.

In Lane #2 is Preston's ladybug.

Again in Lane #2 is Kaitlyn's carrot.

After the races, the results came in. Unfortunately, our 2 cars didn't place. Kaitlyn got a trophy for participating. Preston is still too young to be an official participant to receive a trophy. Next year, he will be official when he becomes a Royal Ranger.

It was lots of fun and we'll start thinking about what designs we will have for next year.
UPDATE: Preston ended up getting a trophy. They just happen to run out of trophies for the preschoolers the night of the races. He was super excited to have his very own trophy.
