Pinewood Derby

Sam participated in his first Pinewood Derby last night!! He has taken to Cub Scouts in a huge way... Scouting was invented for kids like Sam.


Sam decided that he wanted to do a cheetah car (surprise, surprise) and he and Tony spent several weekends cutting, sanding and painting his little car to look like a sleek, dangerously fast cheetah.

I pretty much just stayed out of their way...except for supplying the paint and giving a few pointers on painting the cheetah spots.

Although he didn't win any races, Sam had a great time and is already formulating a plan for next year's car...I think I overheard at breakfast something about a Great White shark...


Way to go, Sam!

Way to go Sam... you should have heard Sam explaining the pinewood derby to Ashley in the car yesterday. Hilarious!! So glad it went well and that is one cool looking cheetah!!

Have you ever watched that Pinewood Derby movie? It's pretty funny. I can't wait for Luke to be in scouts. He will LOVE it too. I have a feeling Mike is going to have to be scout master for many years since we will be a good portion of the pack. ( =

Yay, Sam! What a great car! My Will (Hockey Boy) has always loved cheetahs too. He's going to wish he'd thought of doing a Cheetah Car back in his Pinewood Derby days! We still have all the cars that he and his dad made for those fun events.
