In more happy news, I finally finished painting and decorating Ryan's Pinewood Derby car.
Thank goodness since the race is tonight. We are a simple bunch, so Ryan chose to pattern his car after one of his favorite Pokemon named Latios. I painted the car the colors of the Pokemon and added Ryan's and Latios' name for decor. It will have wings soon, but Dad has those at his house. It turned our pretty nice, and it is pretty fast from what I hear! Ryan is last years reigning champion, so he will need the speed to defend his title.
Incidentally, yet another reason to be thankful that your Mom is a scrapbooker: the words on Ryan's car were done using American Crafts rub-ons! Love getting many uses from my ever-growing stash of scrapbooking supplies!
