It’s Pinewood Derby time!  Actually, this is the first Pinewood Derby I have participated in since I was a Cub Scout.  Maxwell was obsessive about finishing his car, I need to give credit where credit is deserved. Grandpa Jerry and Maxwell did most of the work.  They actually started a couple of months ago with the design and learning what makes a fast car while I was still living in Great Falls.  I think they had a lot of fun together–I know Maxwell was appreciative as he kept saying, “that is really nice of Grandpa to help me.”

Yesterday, the three of us got together to finalize everything.  The race is Wednesday night and we are hoping Grandpa returns from his trip to California in time to watch it race!

Most importantly, Maxwell had a lot of fun making the car.
