Our 3rd Annual HMS Pinewood Derby has come and gone (Sunday 3/11/2012), but the memories will last forever. Hopefully that will be a good thing. Ha! By God's grace some memories will fade quickly. Memories of
Hopeful children crying after their first race when they realize their car is slower than Christmas.
Dads "evil-eying" and trash-talking about their competitors' cars in the adult racing division.
Popcorn and confetti strewn across a sanctuary floor that must be cleaned and restored before Monday morning.
"No funny business, Mark!"
Even the silliness and minor disappointments of a night of friendly competition could not damper the fun. Soon after the last race, hope always springs eternal with cries of "Wait til next year!"
