JANUARY: PINEWOOD DERBY

We continued to move through January, just like it was any other month....oh wait. It was.
Caderyn was back in the school routine and glad to be back with his friends.
Isn't that the CUTEST thing you've ever seen?!
 The biggest focus of the month was the Pinewood Derby for Boy Scouts. We don't really have a ton of tools, but we did the best we could with what we had. Caderyn did a lot of the work on the car and it turned out very nicely. It didn't win- and trust me we were just fine that it didn't-but it didn't fall apart. It held its own on the racetrack.
  
Mr. Man was pretty proud of his "Hogster," so aptly named because it hogged the road.
It was funny looking at all the cars and seeing which parents took more liberty in the creation process than others. Some looked like ours, where the boy definitely had more of a hand in the creation process, and others looked like they were bought in a store they were so pristine.

Gibby and his buddy had a blast playing cars together. 
Caderyn won for "Brightest Car."
Some close up pics of the Hogster. 
After the races we went to the park and the boys played Star Wars for about two hours. 
Gibby is an expert spaceship driver.
