Pine Wood Derby 2008

This past Saturday, our kids participated in our Kansas City Sectional Pine Wood Derby.   Grandpa took them out to the derby because I had to stay home and tend to Zeke and Shad.  Thanks Grandpa!
They had a great time seeing friends and familiar faces from other churches in the area and they brought home several ribbons!

They sure had some interesting cars this year!  I think we had cars in all of the divisions this year except for a few like the Leaders Division and the Unlimited Division! 

Titus' car was a sleek silver with a mirror-like finish to it. 
He earned a 4th place ribbon in "Best Workmanship" (Adventure Rangers Division)

Celeste's car was a giant tube of mascara, which we called "Great Flash mas-CAR-a", complete with fake eyelashes glued to the top.  She earned a 2nd place ribbon in "Original Design" and a 3rd place ribbon for "Judges Favorite" (M-Pact Girls Division). 

Moses' car was actually a speed boat.  He earned a 2nd place ribbon for "Fastest Looking Car" (Discovery Rangers Division)

Levi's car was a sleigh with Chiefs emblems on it.  Evidently it became a racing favorite because it was very slow.  The commentator would make comments when it would race...
 "Ah, the Chiefs lose AGAIN!"
But, he won a 2nd place ribbon for "Judges Favorite" and 3rd for "Original Design"
 (Ranger Kids Division)

Zeke even had a car in the race this year.  His was a Spiderman-theme car.  He is too young to race so Levi raced his car in the Open Division.  He earned a 4th place ribbon for "Judges Favorite" and a 5th place ribbon in "Original Design"


"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?  Run in such a way as to get the prize." 
1 Corinthians 9:24

"Therefore, we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."  Hebrews 12:1
