Pinewood Derby rolled around once again this year. Sebastian and Rob created a sparkly green racer that looked like some sort of scarab beetle. Sebi's car came in solidly in the middle of the pack (which is stellar in McFarlandworld). A Beus won first place again [one does every year]. It was low-key and congenial and several siblings entered their cars too [as it has been every year]. The racetrack specialist was so great that when he'd raced every car six times and the kids were still going strong, he started it all over again. The den mothers made a big fuss with decorations and awards and treats as they can be counted on to do. We thank our lucky stars to be part of this troop come Pinewood Derby time!
