The Rodent Rocket

Now that Garrick is 8, he gets to participate in Cub Scouts at our church, and in January was his first Pine Wood Derby! Than had lots of suggestions for him to use in the designing of the car, but ended up making the cheese idea! Unfortunately is was on a weekend when I worked, but I really wanted to go! I worked Friday night, so up all day and then all night, then went to the derby at 9am but probably looked like a zombie! Oh well, the things we do for our kids!
Here is his car with some of the other boy's cars.

His definitely wasn't the fastest, but it was well known! I'd hear, "Has the cheese gone yet?" "How did the cheese do?" and so on! He had fun making it and racing it, so that's what counts!

His award and car!

Cut out "Rodent Rocket" on my silhouette! Man I love that machine!
