These past few weeks Avery and Chris have been working on making cars for the Awana pine car derby. Awana is her sunday night "sunday school" class. The kids learn verses, play games, sing and participate in group activities like this one. The red one with the polly pocket is Avery's car. She designed it and decorated it and we think did a fantastic job. I thought that the rhinestones were a nice touch! She did so great. She won her first race, and then i think got second andthird in her subsequent races. She was so proud of herself, and we were proud too! The one shot with the 4 cars in a row was mid-race and they were in a complete dead heat right down to the finish line. She was so close to taking 3rd place overall...it was down to one point. But, she did get a 2nd place trophy for design. She was thrilled to get that little gold trophy. I don't think any picture really captures the look on her face. She skipped up to get the trophy and then she jumped up and down for about 5 minutes afterward. Very excited girl! It now resides on her bookshelf with her car and her participation ribbon.
