AC loves to sail so Sarah wanted to create a boat. She spent a lot of time and toil working on her masterpiece. She started and threw away several versions until she created one that she liked and then she spent a lot of time adding details such as a beach with glitter sand and real seashells, a little girl fishing from the boat, a crab, and heart shaped sails.
To Sarah's excitement, Aunt Cathy loved the boat as much as she hoped and has even put it in her office at work right beside a sailing trophy she won!
Now, if I can get her to do the same thing next weekend when Aunt Cathy isn't in the stands! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the shot or the basket, I do have a few other action shots from the game.

After Sarah's game it was time for the Cub Scout's Pinewood Derby. Dan and Peter spent a lot of time sawing and sanding and painting. Peter got to do a lot more of the actual work on the car this year than last year but it still wasn't enough for him. But 8-year-olds and power tools don't always mix well so he will just have to wait a little longer before he makes the entire car himself.
He finished 3rd in his Den and was thrilled. But then the top 3 finishers from all of the dens competed and he didn't do as well. He was very disappointed. He didn't cry but he doesn't hide his emotions very well and did a lot of pouting. But I guess Boy Scouts builds character so better luck and better attitude next time!
