The Cub Scout Pinewood Derby was today. I'm pretty sure it washed away any leftover grief Andrew had from yesterday's spelling bee because he got second place in his den, second place overall and first place in the open class race. Pete got third place in the open class (a race at the end that anyone can compete in). Pete should feel proud, though, because of the twelve cars in the final competition, he helped build the three cars that placed.

Nicholas was disappointed that his car did not place this year, but he got an award for the "red-hottest car." Andrew generously gave one of his second place trophies to Nicholas, who won't put it down.

The boys had a great day at this annual scout event and Katie and I enjoyed watching the races. It is always refreshing to see good sportsmanship being used. As far as I'm concerned, everyone who participated is a winner.
