Wordful Wednesday – The Pinewood Derby

Wordful Wednesday 411:   Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add  my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below.  Easy peasy.

Child #3 just joined Cub Scouts.  His very first meeting was The Pinewood Derby, which is a pretty big deal in the Cub Scouting world.  It’s a good thing he has a dad that went through the Scouting program and knew what to expect and what to do.

They had exactly ONE day to carve, mount and paint Garrett’s car.

And I had exactly one day to buy his his cub scout shirt and  iron on the requisite patches.

The race was pretty fun.  We were convinced Garrett’s car would smoke the competition, but it um.  only smoked a few.

It did win a ribbon for most sleek car, though.  Next year we are going for fastest car.  :)

Have any of your boys won The Pinewood Derby?  If so, what is the secret?  

Have you been over to visit my co-host Amanda at Parenting by Dummies yet?
