Pine Wood Derby

Keegan had his first ever Pine Wood Derby this week.  He had been super excited to make his car and he and Doug had it finished about a week before the race.  They had a car emergency the night before the Derby, but thanks to an extra kit from Keegan's good friend Luke, they took care of it and were ready to go.  We tried to prepare Keegan for the possibility of losing every race, but he surprised us by saying, "It's okay if I lose, because me and Dad had such a fun time making my car."  What the WHAT??  Who's kid IS that?  Anyway, we needn't have worried, because his car kicked butt!!   He ended up placing 4th out of 28 kids and 1st in his den.  All in all, it was a great first race.

The Weigh In - he looks a little nervous!
 Anticipation...
 and Relief that it's all over

GREAT job Keegan!! Awesome placing! Jordan placed 4th and first in his den also his first year...must be a Gooch trait! This year he didn't do as well and I swear Scott took it WAY worse then Jordan did!! :) Good job Keegan on having a positive perspective!

That's funny, Lora!! It's true - sometimes I think the dads care more than the boys :)
