Final finishing touches for Pinewood Derby

Today was the final day to finish up pinewood derby cars. This is the first year that both kids get to race officially (though D helped A build a car to race unofficially last year). So, after dinner, D put weights, wheels and axles on the cars. He made an unfortunate discovery, though - it seems that Super Glue doesn't glue well to Rustoleum paint (which M had used to paint his car) - so he had to tack the weights on. Here are the 2 cars on the track. A's is orange, M's is blue.

It was evidently a very busy, exciting day for A, as you can see here:

He was fine at the race, but curled up in the chair after we got home. I thought he was curled up playing his gameboy, but I guess sleep overtook him. zzzzz
