Pinewood Derby 2012

Third time is the charm!
This was Connor's third Pinewood Derby and he had not done very well in the past, but he always had a smile on his face and was a great sport. So of course on our way to the church to take part in the racing we had a discussion about good sportsmanship, win or lose. Thinking that the car would follow the path of previous years I focused heavily on the being a good sport if you lose. 
To our astonishment Connor and his "corvette" car did great. He placed second and was thrilled with his victory, and thankfully was as good a winner as he had been when he was the loser.
