Derby day!

Last weekend Rayne competed in his 3rd CubScouts pinewood derby!

The hubbs and my little 8 year old bear cub scout sawed, sanded, painted and finished a car of Rayne’s design.

Always a procrastinator, hubbs didn’t get it done until the night before and Rayne was even putting stickers on it the morning of, but at least those boys got it done.

Rayne’s car didn’t place, turns out the front was too heavy, but he had fun with the whole process and that is what matters. He was a little upset that his car never won first place, but I was proud of him for how he handled his disappointment.

All the cubs received a medal for their work and participation. It’s Rayne’s first medal so he’s ecstatic about it! He wore it the entire day and since then keeps randomly wearing it around.

Here’s all 3 of his cars from every year he’s raced. And he’s already thinking of colors and designs for next year.
