Ok, so the Pinewood Derby was at the end of January and I'm only now getting to it. Someday I will be better. Anyway, this was Alex's first one and he was really excited. Since my brother was here for Christmas, he was able to help Alex with his car. They measured and cut and sanded and the car turned out great! The day of the derby arrived and I have to say, it is really fun to watch. Alex won his first race, which totally made his day and he came in 3rd, 2nd, and 1st, respectively in his other heats. He wound up coming in 4th out of the 13 wolves (I did not count the wolf who came in first overall) and had a great time. Way to go Alex!
Ready to race!
