So, without further adeau, here are the picutures of the Pinewood Derby and a field trip to see how solar power works that I was lucky enough to attend with Lund.
Here are all the cars lined up... Lund's car is the 3rd from the bottom of the picture.
Here is Lund at the starting line with Bryce. The track we have in Bagdad always cracks me up. Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful that we have a track here at all, but we always have to put it together with chairs and rocks and bricks and such. Someone at the mine made it about a million years ago and one of the cars this year hit a bump on the track and pretty much exploded mid-air. There were tires flying everywhere and it was pretty hillarious.
Lund and his proud dad. They always make the car together and Morgan does such a great job of letting Lund do most of the work and encouraging him along the way. What a great dad!!!! Lund won 3rd place this year and he qualified to go onto Prescott for Regionals, but since he won 1st last year and had the chance to race in the Regionals already, he is letting another boy go in his place. What a sweet kid!!!
These pictures are from our solar power field trip. I learned A LOT about solar power. I am not quite sure the boys retained as much, but I am sure they had a great time. Little known fact for those of you that don't live in Bagdad: People that live outside of Bagdad in the desert use solar power. For the field trip we are only about 11 miles outside of town. (That shows how far in the middle of the desert we live! he he)
