The Thrill of Victory...

It was the big night...the night of the Pinewood Derby. 
Seth and his friends were pretty excited.  Expectations were high.  Seth was hoping to retain his championship title :) from last year with his "rolled up newspaper car ".
Sadly, sometimes you have the thrill of victory, and sometimes you have the agony of defeat.  Seth's beautifully designed car, the one that he and his dad worked so hard to make together, had the fastest start, but then jumped the track.  It meant immediate disqualification.  :(  However, he handled himself so well and was such a good sport, thanks in no small part to his friends who reassured him.
Despite the disappointment, we are very proud of this racing team.  Better luck next year, Seth!
