I'm a girl. This means that in the culture in which I was raised I never had the chance to build a pinewood derby car. That's a scout thing. Now I'm not complaining - in fact I think it's great that my first opportunity came just a few weeks ago when our ward activity invited everyone to build a car. I was ready for this and had big plans.
I got a little carried away, but it was SO fun! I want to take up whittling, or wood working. I told Tyler I want to get a giant log or stump so I can carve a totem pole in the backyard. Seriously - this was some major craft therapy for me.
But - I let the girls claim it as their own and race it. We were slow - didn't even come close to the fast cars, but we were so pretty we got the Sweeptakes trophy.
And what a trophy it was! Where do you put this thing? Such a fun night - our ward really is awesome at throwing parties.
