During our long, drawn out illness, I did take a day off from sick babies to spend with my non-sick 11 year old at his Pinewood Derby district competition.

His car is the grey one with the gun on top.  (He wanted a military vehicle).

I didn’t get his pack Derby due to some major car trouble so there are no pictures from that.  But, he won 3rd place in his age group and the “Best Military Vehicle” award.

The competition at Districts was a little steeper.  He came in 7th out of 8 kids in his age group.  But, he was a good sport and had fun anyway.

This is his last year doing Pinewood Derby.  It’s a little bittersweet.  On one hand, I’m proud of the “almost” teenager he’s becoming.  But, on the other, I still wish he would stay a little boy, just a little while longer.
