Pinewood Derby!

Tonight was Will's Cub Scout pack's Pinewood Derby. For anyone who doesn't know, in the pwd, boys make and decorate cars out of blocks of wood and they are raced down a simple track. It is a big deal-- the highlight of the year for Cub Scouts!

The track at the race tonight

Will had a great time planning and cutting and painting his car with Rod. We have been counting down to the derby for weeks now. His car did well in the races. He came in 5th out of 17 Tigers (the youngest cub scout rank.) I was a bit worried that he would be disappointed he didn't win, but he had so much fun watching all of the races and cheering for his friends, that he wasn't sad at all. He had a great night!
