Pinewood Derby and more snow!!

The kids had off school on Friday for a regularly scheduled inservice day.  Yesterday (Monday) we had another snowstorm and they were home again from school all day.  Today they had a two hour delay and tonight we are supposed to get freezing rain and more snow!  Bennett got sick last night and was home from school today.  Tomorrow his school closed due to the forecast and current conditions around his school. 

The bright spot was the Pinewood Derby on Saturday!  Mark I mean Nathan finished third in his Den and seventh in his pack!  The top three in his Den moved onto the finals and then the top six from there got trophies.  Nathan missed it by one and was really disappointed. Here are some pictures.

First, Second & Third in Den 5!


Seventh overall but in the finals he was the first of the three boys in his Den!

This is a picture of the trophy winners and Nathan is in the background, upset.  It was so sweet how it affected him.  Last year he was completely oblivious and we had to remind him to watch his car!  I love this picture, not because he is sad but because he was invested in the race and of course seeing Mark kneeling down talking to him!

Way to go Nathan! Sorry you didn't get a trophy, but great job anyway. And you look terrific in your scout uniform!
