Last Saturday, Austin's Cub Scout pack had their annual Pine Wood Derby at school. The week before Scott spent several late nights trying to make the fastest car he could. I don't want to think how much that car wound up costing...but it was worth it in the end because they came in second place!!! We were all so excited. Poor Austin had been in the top 10 the last few years and always received awards for his design and paint job but never for speed and this was his year. He came in second by .09 seconds... not too bad. He was so excited to get his trophy and now we are on to the district race!
Here is a picture of all of the cars...all of the boys did a good job with the designs of their cars
Here are the boys in Austin's den ready to race...Sammy, Colton, Cody, Austin, Andrew and Chase.
Here are Austin and Chase showing off their trophies. Chase came in first with his Gold Nugget Car!
And here is our little champion... he was so excited... i think he was almost in tears. But we had given him a pretty good talk about sportsmanship before the race so he was holding back the temptation to jump for joy...so was his daddy!
