2015 Pinewood Derby First Place!

Guess who won 1st place in the Boy Scout pinewood derby!!!!!  William and Dada pulled it out in a heated race off against another car during the finals.  William was busting out of his skin with excitement.  He came so close to a trophy last year, and I will admit I wanted so badly for him to place in the race.  It didn't matter to me 1st, 2nd or 3rd.  I just wanted him to win.  Not in a competive way, but more so for him to have his moment in the sun.  He's never won a trophy for a contest.  Just the mom in me.  I wanted that win as much as he did and my goodness! He did it!!!  During the run off race for 1st place, all the boys gathered around William chanting "William! William!" He was beaming and it was such a testimony to who William is and showed me just how much his friends really value him.  Proud moment for mom.  

Dan was helping out on the stage and I could tell he was kind of nervous about the race. But when William's car crossed the finish line first, there was beaming smile across dada's face and he watched William accept the trophy with a proud sense of accomplishment.  

William's car also came in 4th overall.  A big deal considering there were over 28 cars in the race.
