This blog is about the Life and Times of our Retired Navy Family.
We have been typical Navy Family, trying to make wonderful memories and meet life's challenges through moves, deployments, and making do. Now we are on to new adventures and trying to settle in one place and grow some roots. We learn new things, make new friends and make it up as we go along, hoping and praying for the best.

Pinewood Derby Fever
Today was District Pinewood Derby competition for Adam. There were a ton of people there and competition was fierce. People were very, very into the whole thing. When I asked one spectator if I could leave after our heat if we didn't win, he looked at me like I had 3 heads and asked me why on earth I would want to leave before the trophies were handed out. (Um... because I don't get it... Maybe it's a girl thing, but there were lots of Mom's there who were way into it too, so maybe I just don't get it.)
Adam had a great game face, but his car lost out in his second heat. Maybe next year. We were with some friends from church and one of our Weblos won 3rd place in his division. He was very excited. Here are some pictures from our day. Spending some time waiting with Sister.
