A (glorious) week in review...



Sam just had the Cub Scouts' pinewood derby.
His car was awesome and scored 2nd, 1st, 2nd! 

Gotta love that!





Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Lolli




My men did such a great job (carving this from a piece
of wood...from a tree...haha, Tara), and it was
really cool to see it finally race and do well...









One boy was so very proud...(okay, maybe 2!)

Great car!! Congrats to Sam!! =)

I sometimes wonder if it would be smart to try to find a troop? for Sammy... every thing is always a little harder with the vision barrier...

Run DMT said...

Way to go! Those pinewood derbies are so much fun. Why don't the Girl Scouts get to do cool things like that? No, they're too busy selling flipping cookies! :-P

Anyway, I loved your photos! :-)
