Grand Prix

We finished the year of Faith Weaver Friends (a youth group for grades K-6) at our church with a Grand Prix pine care derby race. Moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, siblings, and friends all met in the fellowship hall to see whose car would win.

Siblings raced each other; cousins raced each other; we all cheered. Designs ranged from the cheerfully simple to the elaborately detailed. My little man designed his minivan complete with license plates and wiper blades, and my little one (whose car won third place for design) selected a fun school bus design.

Daddy helped with the basic shape, but the kids did the design and painting on their own.

We enjoyed the evening together as we celebrated the new friendships made this year, the verses put to memory, and the fun had by all.
