"It's a great car, sweetie! I'm so proud of you! You worked so hard building it...now remember, it doesn't matter if you come in first place or last. The most important thing is that you did your best and you are having fun with your friends."
...Pep talk I gave before Pinewood Derby (to Brad)
Jake had a great time at the Derby. He had a couple of 2nd place runs and a few opportunities to learn the art of losing graciously.
We celebrated afterward with fries and shamrock shakes at McDonalds. It was fun until Luke threw up all over the restaurant.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
