I had to post about the award ceremony from the Pinewood Derby that happened this Friday night. My son was all excited to be apart of receiving his very first trophy.
Here they are all lined up and pretty. Each participant received the small gold ones, the star trophies went to the open class and the three talls went to the three overall winners. Zach won a red ribbon for taking 2nd place in his Den, a small trophy for participating and the third smallest for his 3rd place win in the Pack.
Had some fun playing with the beautiful shiny things all lined up in a row.

And here is the awesome 3rd place trophy. We are so very proud of him and the car he designed and how he was such a good sport about it all.
We found a nice spot for it in our dining room but it barely fit. Its really quite tall! He wasn't sure he loved it there because what if next year he does better and wins a taller one? Where would it fit?!?! So we moved it to the kitchen with plenty of room to display a possibly taller one in the future. :)
And by the end of the night usually one of our kids sheds some tears. We never know who its going to be but this night, it was Miss V. She was upset that she got her paper airplane snatched from her by one of the boys doing an airplane fight activity. Daddy tried to understand exactly how she wanted us to fix it. Instead of helping, I captured the moment, as a good mommy.
