Tonight was aaawweeessoooommme!
This is my second year doing the Pinewood Derby. Last year, Dad was travelling a lot and didn't have time to really help me with my Pinewood Derby, so we borrowed one, and it did great. But this year, I was really excited when my Dad said we could buy one early, and I could make it however I wanted it. I drew a picture showing him what I wanted, and then we went to the store to buy the stuff to make it. I decided I wanted it painted silver, and I found some really cool decals to put on it.
Tonight, we finished up a couple more things on it and then it was time for the race.
I was so excited because I set a new track record-TWICE! My car was the fastest one tonight, and the fastest one ever on that track! I got a first place trophy and a certificate. I also got an award for "Best Use of Decals". The best part was making it with my dad. I can't wait to do it again next year!
