Pine Wood Derby

Connor wasn't quite sure what to think about the pine wood derby. He was pretty excited at first and stoked that Dad put some weights in the back. I think he had convinced himself that he was going to win. When he lost his first run he was so mortified that he turned red and couldn't remove his hands from his face. It was nice that he had another try. He competed with what must have been the slowest car and this time he won. He got a ribbon and left with mixed feelings about the event... until next year.


  1. Yay Conner!! The underdog that won the race! That's my favorite kind of victory. Love, Aunt K
