« the derby «

It’s January, which means it’s Pinewood Derby time!!
Last week was Conner’s third and final Derby, and our last one for 2 years {Hallelujah}!
The night was made more special because, unbeknownst to us, Conner earned his Webelos.

He has three more months with this Webelos group and then he FINALLY gets to be with Dave in 11-year old scouts!! The wait is made easier because Conner started in Dave’s Primary class at the beginning of the year.  You know what that means?  4 out of the 6 members of our family are in Primary (or Nursery).

Okay, so back to the Derby.  This year Conner (and Dave) decided to format the car after a Humvee.  They even used their new airbrush kit to put the finishing touches on.  Looks pretty good, but how did it drive?

My prediction was that Conner would come in 2nd, Logan said 1st, Conner also said 2nd.  We were close:  he came in 3rd!  Last year was 4th, so that was an improvement.  So awesome!  We got some great footage thanks to Dave’s GoPro, which he hooked on the car.  Talk about being part of the race.
