My Cub Scout ..

I have been preoccupied with life this week, so my blog was bare. My apologies...

This past weekend was AWESOME! Luke (my Cub Scout/Wolf) participated in the Pinewood Derby.
He did a spectacular job in designing his car (I helped paint) and while there were 5 Wolf Scouts tat participated, there was only room for the Top 3!

I wish all the boys could have placed because I could tell they all worked hard on their cars...

Luke took 1st Place in the Wolf Heat (YAY!) and then it was a photo finish for the Overall Champ..
Luke & a Webelos II boy (he leaves us in March to be a Boy Scout) had a One Race-That's It-Winner Take Overall Champ Finish.. Half way down the track, Luke's car jumped and his friend won the Overall 1st Place. Luke took 2nd Overall, which is great since last year it was 3rd place & Most creative car (he made a Hummer last year)

So now, once we get the date, Luke will go to Districts with his car. We've been told not to expect much as it seems more like a "Clique-ish" type of thing and some peoples cars don't really get "checked".

But I am proud of my guy...
