The lineup of cool cars
Andrew's orange race car.
Andrew participated in his first Pinewood Derby tonight. I was very nervous and hoped he wouldn't come in 18th place out of 18 cars. After all, I've heard these are very competitive "my Dad is bigger than your Dad" contests, and I sure didn't want Andrew to be a Dud on his first time out! After he handily won the first couple heats he ran, I sat back and was pleased. (And secretly wished it would be over soon because apparently, Pinewood Derbies last FOREVER!)
Top three finishers-- go Andrew!
Sadly, we have nowhere to go but downhill from here, so next year is sure to be a disappointment!
