Racing

David and I coordinated for the fourth year running, the annual CAM Car Race on April 19th. It’s a pinewood derby race that happens every April as part of the Joint Learning Session.  It’s a fun event with laughter, a few tears and many smiles.

Joshua had a humvee vehicle named Blaster and Jonah had a dragster named Flames.  Flames was firing on all cylinders and literally flew off the track losing a tire and its weights.  Blaster held his own, but didn’t make it into the top ten.  We are proud of both of them.
