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.

WTG kiddo!

I'm not into it either, but what do you do?

All that testosterone racing down a wooden track on Pinewood Derby day is crazy...even on Guam it was sooo competitive!! But Adam's car looked great! Maybe there should be two competitions instead: one for the speed junkies another for style. Way to endure this Scouting milestone!

I don't get it either but it is real:)

Chad once had to do the brackets, to keep track of who won what heats. Can I just say--some of the parent's got scary. I'm glad Adam had fun. He is such a sweet heart.
