Ella and Cavin participated in their church's pinewood derby. It was the first time for both of them. We went over to grandpa Speers' house and he and Ragnar helped cut the wood for their cars. They decorated and painted them there and were excited.
Cavin participated the week before Ella with his cub scout troop. He unfortunately didn't have the best time. He is so competitive and so when his car came in last almost every time, he left in tears. We will have to do our best to make sure we up our pinewood derby game! We definitely need to add weights!
Ella had a MUCH better experience. We learned a couple things from Cavin's and made hers heavier. She did pretty well. She was most concerned about how her car looked. She was hoping to get the award for the Cutest car and she did!! That made her night!!
