Cub Scout Pinewood Derby

This years pinewood derby sneaked up on us!  The weather canceled two times when Rob was going to get to base and cut out the boys cars.  So, with only a week left until the race Rob got their cars cut out and then the mad polishing, sanding, gluing madness began.  This is Noah's LAST YEAR racing in the CUB scout pinewood derby since he will cross over to Boy Scouts in February, and this is Micah's FIRST time racing!  Both boys LOVED their cars and did almost all the work on them on their own.  Noah's car, designed as an X-wing fighter (from Star Wars), took 4th place out of all the WEBLO II's and Micah won a design award (for most imaginative).  Both came away very happy with their cars and race day.

Micah with his "Lego" car.  I think part of the reason he won a desin award is because you could tell that all the work on this car was designed and done BY the first grader.  He was so proud of his car!
