Reagan's first pinewood derby was last night. He was SO excited about his car that he'd designed and painted! I'm a big believer in letting my boys do as much of the process as possible including the paint job. This is after all, their car! In this case it meant Reagan took the initiative to find the tempera paints we have on hand and go to it on his own. Yes, chalky finish and all. But I love it! He named it the "Patriot". It came in second!
