Pinewood Derby

Sheer excitement
Anticipation Good old Pinewood Derby.
Our families first - with many more to follow
Connor worked hard on his vehicle.
Mom was a little nervous and had him make a second one and race both beforehand so we knew it would actually make it down the track.
It wouldn't have mattered.
Connor was thrilled to just participate.
He lost his first race and won two afterwards.
He was very happy and proud of himself.
I was more proud of how he behaved.
When the real racing was done the boys raced for fun.
When Connor raced his friend who had not won any races he set up the slower of his two cars.
I mentioned it to him and suggested he race the faster car.
He whispered to me, "mom, he hasn't won a race yet and I want him to win this one."
Lesson learned, thank you Connor - always a thoughtful and kind boy.
