I don't think I could ever participate in Wordless Wednesday because I talk too much.
Last Saturday, I took my 2 youngest to see a soapbox derby. I didn't even know we had one around here til last year. I went with my good friend Jill & her youngest son participated. Both of her sons have been doing it for years, but her oldest has (kind of) grown out of it. Next year, my kids will be a part of it all.
Here they are after watching most of it :
I have to throw this one in - Andewd was watching my friend's son race & rooting him on - the end result was a win & an awesome reaction from the Dewd.
We had a good time, but they were both really bummed that they weren't doing it.
I'm adding a few more pics....didn't know if I should or not, but there is more to see - just a few of the racers in their cars.
This style car is for the early years kids. I think 7-10 year olds. The first year drivers are only allowed name & sponsor stencils, otherwise the cars are just white.
These cars are for the age group 11-13 (I think, maybe even to 14).
These are the older kids cars. They almost lie down in them & we can barely see their eyes. Looks so awesome!
