where's that checkered flag???

It's time again for the Awana Grand Prix (pine box derby) race!  Wyatt was VERY determined to win.  And Ella was determined to have a really cool looking car.  Chris got to work on learning how to make a piece of wood race at top speeds.  Meanwhile the kids chose their designs.  Wyatt wanted a red sports car with flames.  Ella requested a purple Batgirl car, completely with Lego Batgirl driving.  In the end, Wyatt won the first heat, beat out Ella in the second heat, and went on to be the overall winner of the Sparks (age group).  He raced in the final Grand Prix but came in second.  Still he was pretty proud of his Sparks win . And wore the most adorable grin the entire afternoon.  Ella was pretty thrilled with her 3rd place trophy for best design.  It was a winning afternoon for our household!
