jakob's 1st pinewood derby

Yesterday was Jakob's first Pinewood Derby. He was very proud of his car! Here are a few pics...





He got the award for "Most Decals"  -- LOL
All the cute derby racers...

The scouting world still seems very foreign to me...but I am slowly learning how things work!  One thing I've learned so far is that sewing patches on those shirts is not fun.  But, hopefully will get easier over time! 

I can remember my mom having den meetings at our house when she helped out with my little brothers, and I remember my dad going on campouts, especially when he went on the Mountain Man Rendevous when we lived in Colorado.  I don't think I will ever forget the smell of the animal hides he cured in our garage.  But his raccoon hat was pretty sweet!  Not sure if Brad will ever do something like that, but I look forward to seeing more bonding experiences between father and son through scouting!

I absolutely love that Jakob is so enthusiastic about it all...it's definitely a blessing for him and I am so thankful for the leaders who work so hard to make it all work!

How fun! We have no boys here and I had no brothers. I love watching my nephew do scouting stuff because I'm clueless.
