So. . .this was a first for us. Our cub scouts had a raingutter regatta instead of a pinewood durby this year. So. . .Jeff created a boat for Josh instead of a car. It was sorta tricky, but he did a great job - don't you think?
Josh wanted to make sure and have his boat be #1. So that's just what we did.
Then it was off to the race. . .sitting with anticipation. . .
It was tricky for Josh to get the hang of it - the first time he raced he came in second. He said blowing all that way was making him super dizzy. He was a little bit disappointed that he came in second, but all he needed to hear is that he got another chance.
He kept his hopes up and had a positive attitude.
And at the end of the event. . . . . .
Josh took first place!!!! It was so exciting!! Good job captain Josh -
and a big thanks to his engineer (dad) :)
Then he had to race against the scout master's boat . . . I missed a picture of it but it was not regulation and the scout master won :)
Then he had to race against the Primary First Councilor's boat - isn't it pretty - Josh won this race - hands down :)
He can't wait to claim his prize in August. What a fun event.
