Pine Wood Derbys and DIY Trophies
The builder called yesterday to give me an update. Wasn't that nice? He said that the excavator they were going to use won a bid with the city. Which means that he now has to scramble to find a new excavator. So that is where we're at. As of now no ground has been broken. (Except by the occasional neighborhood cat who uses my yard as a toilet.)
Since I have no house pictures to show you I will include some pictures of my children.
Harrison won 2nd place in the Pinewood Derby. We wanted him to build the car on his own, but the design he picked was too involved. He painted it himself but we did the rest. Next year my plan is for him to do the whole thing completely on his own. You know, mostly.
Colin was very sad not to get a trophy of his own so after whining about it for most of the night I made him this.
And just so you know I composed this entire post on my phone in the comfort of my bed. Isn't technology magical?
