Josh worked VERY hard on his car. He drew the design, painted it, carved out spots for his headlights and taillights--and even wired his headlights and taillights so they worked! Everyone oohed and aahed appropriately when his car was racing with its lights on! :)
He ended up taking 2nd place overall, plus he was unanimously voted as the leaders' choice award (the medal around his neck in the above picture). I was SO grateful to those leaders who saw how much work, effort and, yes, love he put into making that car.
This is a great cub scout troop. I'm happy that we're a part of it.
After the derby, our 'adopted' grandparents who came with us to the event took the kids out for ice cream to celebrate and stayed to play a few games with my obsessive game girl. It was a wonderful day!
