A couple weeks ago Marvel's scout troop (or pack, I guess) had their annual Raingutter Regata. The boys were all given a boat kit a couple of weeks earlier, to which they all put them together and decorated them and such.
Here's Marvel's masterpiece, "The Conquerer":
The boats all at dock.
Kinda ironic they're all in a Barbie pool...
Gotta start off with the flag salute.
Marvel earned his first badges & belt loops.
Way to go Marvel!
And we're off to the races!
On your marks...
...and they're off!
That's my boy!!
Marvel ended up winning 1 out of 2 of his races...not too shabby (especially considering we lost the metal weight thing that was supposed to be on the bottom...but so did all the other kids, so his wasn't the only one that kept falling over).
Next up...Pinewood Derby, here we come! :-)
