Pinewood Derby

Well, I got Jaydn's first Pinewood Derby car (block of wood) with only two weeks to spare.

This thing requires a lot of work to make it fast. Carving, sanding, painting, etc., etc., etc... Jaydn did the paint job himself, and chose the stickers. At the end I got lazy and just put fishing weight lead on the back to weigh it down. It did pretty good, although the scout leaders never said who the winner was.

Most importantly, Jaydn had a blast at the race. He loves scouts!
