Jake's first Pinewood Derby was Saturday, and boy was it a success! No, he didn't win. In fact, he came in last in every heat - that's coming in last 18 times. But that smile there? It's real. And it's real happy. Because the boy won first place in the "Most Original" category. And for Jake, there is no better prize.
Jackson City Bus, 2011 model - Designed, sanded, painted, and raced by Jake. Hacksawed by Mom.
PS. Dan's getting power tools for Father's Day. There will be no more hacksawing of Pinewood Derby cars for this mommy. Just saying.
