It's easy to be a good sport when you win something!

This past weekend was the Cub Scouts annual Raingutter Regatta.  Last years race ended with tears and lectures about sportsmanship.  This years race ended with smiles and sleepovers - no lectures involved.

Peter won third place out of the Wolves which meant in addition to receiving a nice medal, he also got to race in the overall competition.  He didn't win anything there but the excitement of getting to continue to compete seemed to be enough for him.

Peter's best friend Colton took first place out of the Wolves and second place overall.  Way to go guys!

And thanks to Jennifer who invited Peter over to spend the night after the Regatta.

Races.  Medals.  BFFs.  Sleepovers.  That's the stuff memories are made of!

This is Peter blowing into the sail of his "The Wimpy Kid" boat!  Didn't my husband do a great job with the drawing on the sail?

This is Colton and Peter in fierce boat-to-boat battle! 

Aren't they cute?  Look at those smiles - nd this was even before they found out they were going to have a sleep over!

My daughter has a really hard time with sportsmanship, lol. I hope she makes a turnaround like your son did! It looked like a fantastic day.

Fun times. I know Peter is a Wimpy Kid fanatic. Did you get him the newest book that came out on Tuesday? A bunch of my students pre-ordered it with our Scholastic Book Order, and the books showed up Tuesday afternoon. They were super excited.
