The Annual AWANA Grand Prix Race was held last night at our church. This was DD’s first year to participate. When Brother Darling was in Cub Scouts we had the opportunity to experience this same bonding exercise of building a car. BONDING is not a word I would use to describe our experience…. With Brother D we waited until the last minute to begin. We owned absolutely NO wood-working tools and had very limited wood cutting experience. Brother Darling showed NO interest in the project, and it didn’t exactly excite Daddy D either. They ended up ruining the first block of wood, and having to purchase a precut model. Fun. Fun.
Needless to say, Daddy D didn’t exactly smile when Desheng Darling told him that she wanted to enter the race. Luckily, some men from our church provided saws which really helped.DD decided to make a butterfly car. She painted it yellow and pink and added lots of jewels. Although Doodlebug is too young to enter the race, she really enjoyed painting her own car (bought from Wal-Mart-ready to paint-no assembly required.)
