Pinewood Derby 2007 - Part 2

Tonight after work, I started to feel very sick. Butch (my boss) told me I looked “very tired” before I went to lunch, and after a one mile walk, I came back and felt more awake, but lousy. I started getting a headache that did not want to go away. By the time I got home my headache was terrible and I took some ibuprofen to try and help. It was going no where fast. I thought I would have to postpone working on the derby cars.
.
Michele had to leave for work, and by this time I was sure I was going to have to call in sick for work tomorrow… I decided to lay down, and actually fell asleep for about an hour. I was feeling a little better, so I made the kids dinner, and had some eggs and toast myself. By the time I was done eating, I felt as good as new, and was excited to start working on the pinewood derby cars!
.
The kids did their chores, and when everyone was finished, we sat down and started drawing out some ideas for their cars.

As stated before, Jonathan felt he had a winning design, and therefore wanted to keep his design as close as possible to last years car. (He wants to change the colors though…) He has a bit more sanding to do, but it turned out pretty darn good if you ask me!

Zachary had originally wanted to make a pick up truck, but as we were drawing out designs, he changed his mind and wanted to go for something that was a bit more “streamlined”… Zachary has a lot more sanding to do on his car, but I think he is off to a great start!

I on the other hand was set on my design idea, and was so excited to get it started!

I am going to let a picture speak a thousand words…

I still have to “hollow” out the top(s) and the bottom, some sanding, and have to come up with a creative way to get a “soft silky lining” inside, and find some TINY hinges…but, I bet you get the idea…

Hey, Auntie Denise... When your boys are ready for Cub Scouts and the Pinewood Derby, gimme a call! I'd LOVE to help them out!! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! (Evil laugh)
