sunday citar...."sportsmanship"

this is my son's 1st year as a cub scout...
and i'd have to say that we haven't
enjoyed anything more!
but the competition....
we were not prepared for!
it all began with the annual cake sale...
(again, new to us being our first year)
we went for the 'patriotic' themed cake...


THIS was the actual winner!!!
quite the difference eh?


we'll get em' next year!!!



then came the PINEWOOD DERBY...



unfortunatley.....
he came in last cause momma don't know
how to build no fast cars!
and yet, they were both such a blessing to us....
because both times we were in a position to teach
one of those great 'life lessons'
that, as parents, we all must teach.
and the TRUE joy and spirit of boy scouts
is that we help our pack grow by supporting one another...
and the spirit of 'sportsmanship' lives on!
"One man practicing SPORTSMANSHIP
is better than a hundred teaching it."

Oh! I love this so much. You have the best attitude. The winner was impressive with the cake. All that fondant and molding. NICE! I bet your cake tasted better though! : )

You have a great outlook on life. I am glad we are friends.

We're just finishing up our 1st year, too. It's been so exciting!

Sweet, sweet moments captured!

That pinewood derby does get a little competitive, doesn't it? We've had some of those teaching moments ourselves being in cub scouts! Great attitude! :)

Your cake looked like it was delish!

The Pinewood Derby...boy, there are some memories! My dad didn't know much about building the cars either and mine took 3rd in every race; talk about depressing. Good thing there was an award for kids whose cars were pathetic...
