Car Races

Today was the annual AWANA car race. AWANA is a children's club, and each year the children get wooden car kits. The parents help build the cars, and the kids decorate them. Then there is a race between all the kids. It's quite a big production, and our Sunday School Superintendent does a really good job organizing it each year.

Unfortunately I'm pretty hopeless at building cars. And every year my kids cars come in last. This year, for the first time, my children's cars placed well in a couple of the races. I made a good guess on how much weight to put on the cars, paid lots of attention to the alignment of the wheels, and applied a little graphite lubricant. Although they didn't make it to the finals, they did have fun.
