The Elder's Quorem at church recently had an activity that my boys were VERY excited about (especially Dustin!). They held a Rocket Derby! Jack had fun cutting out the shape of the car when we were in Kansas in Grandpa's shop.
Then he got to paint the car with his daddy (which up until it happened he reminded us EVERY day that we needed to paint this car....)
Jack with "The Jack Attack" before races began!
Jack and his best buddy, Phoenix, watching the launches!
Some highlights from the activity....
The Jack Attack pretty much rocked each run, posting speeds like 69 mph and 71 mph. However, it took a beating each run too, bending axles, losing tires, etc. Between rounds of the bracket, Dustin frantically worked to piece the car back together, stealing pieces off of cars that were out of the running if necessary. It was pretty entertaining to watch!
It all paid off! Look who won the 100 Grands.... :)
