Pinewood Derby Race

Yesterday was the Pinewood Derby Race for the Royal Rangers and National Girl's Ministries.  There were approximately 40-50 cars that raced and everyone did such a great job.  It was a lot of fun.

I'm very proud of my kids and all the work they put into their cars. You see, my kids started researching which car they wanted to make this year right after the races last year.  Months ahead of time they decided on their design and drew them out on paper.  You can ask Katilyn what makes a derby car faster and she will quickly inform you on what shape works best as well as the best aerodynamics.  I'm proud to see that their work paid off.

Here are some pictures from last night.
