Pinewood Derby

This is J's last year of Cub Scouts (he'll move to Boy Scouts next year) and that made it his last year to build a pinewood derby car. He and Daddy spent a lot of time making the car, and it looked great. It starts as a square block of wood, and they have to design it, cut it out, sand it, paint it, and add wheels and axles.

J's car is the black one in the middle.

J ended up finishing in second place on the day, and we were all there to cheer him on.


  1. Yay! Congratulations!

    Our derby is this month, too. I'll have to post a photo of my son's car when it's finished!

  2. Great job J!

    My nephews used to get so excited to participate in it too!



Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
