Pinewood Derby: The Making of...

This is Ryan's first year participating in the cub scout pinewood derby. We got our kit and sat around with it for a few weeks, then we found out we had 6 days until the big event. We decided it was time to call in reinforcements and get started. Grandpa Bill got to help Ryan through this BIG process. There was the design, the cutting, the sanding, the painting, the decals, the wheels, the clear finish, and the fixing and then the finished product. It was a bunch of work and a bunch of time. Ryan LOVED doing this project. He learned so much about tools and painting and decals. He loved working with Grandpa Bill. Ryan is very proud of his car. Now tonight is the race. Keep your fingers crossed! Don't worry, for all you out-of-towners, I will put up a short video of the race. You won't miss it. : )
