Trevor, our engineer, getting his car ready for the big day
He chose the design of his favorite sportscar red Corvette, cut with dad's help, sanded, masked & painted
He learned how to change blades in a jig saw, sharpen a chisel, use a dremel tool, air brush, & polish an axle. Thanks Dad!
Guess who won first place?
out of all of these awesome cars...
in every race it ran
Way to go Trevor! This was his first & last Pinewood Derby (he'll be 11 next month). He'll never forget it.
Pep talk with one of their coaches before the game
Waiting on the sidelines, the kids are instant pals
Sage & friend Danica (green) out in front. Danica & her team were tough to beat, you'd never guess this was Danica's first year playing, she's a natural.
I had to add my nice neighbor friend's comment she posted on facebook after the game (for the girls book)
Dianne,That was SO much fun seeing you and your girls tonight.. They are such fast little one's... Stay away from Sophie and Sage! They are so great at soccer and darling little girls. I love to play against people we know, kids are so much fun.. You look great Dianne. Your such a cutie.. My parents were getting a kick out of watching how fast and slick the girls play.. Great game Sophie and Sage.
So sweet, thanks Shalise
Of course it's not all about winning, it's just fun playing and fun to watch, the girls do their share of tripping over the ball and kicking it out of bounce along as they try to make goals :). The best part is seeing the sportmanship, team work, and new friendships they make. Good job!
