Derby Time!

Our local Cub Scouts had their annual pinewood derby earlier this week. They invited a few "junior racers" to compete in their own race. Carter was really excited to make his car. He worked really hard using large and dangerous power tools to make the perfect body. He waxed the axles and used a little graphite powder and some strategically placed weights to get his car in perfect racing condition. Anyway, after all of Carter's hard work, he had a great race and took 1st place! Jason was really happy to see that the car did well.

We are so happy that spring has finally arrived in Montana! The weather has been great. The kids have been playing outside and having frequent picnics. Shyanne is really changing. She talks all the time. Yesterday I heard her say "That's awesome, Carter!" while they were playing together. I'm pretty excited because her hair is finally getting long enough to do something with. We feel very blessed to live in such a beautiful place with great friends and family not too far away.
