Pinewood Derby

Grey got to participate in his first Pinewood Derby. Unlike some of the other parents, we let Grey make his car 100% and then I felt guilty for not "fixing it up" a little bit. There were some AMAZING cars. He sat outside shaping then sanding and sanding forever. He put so much effort into it. It was cute. He picked out the american flag wrap and the blue paint.

When we got to the weigh-in though it was under weight and obviously you want it to have the maximum weight. So I glued these pennies on the top and he wasn't too thrilled about that. Again--felt bad. Thank goodness we have more. He won a few of the races but didn't place in the top 3. We have a lot of actual engineers in our ward. :)
