About a wee ago, after I got off work. My boy and I started working on this rocket for the Space Derby next week.
He designed what he wanted. He helped some on the body, but had problems using the tools. And he painted it himself. (can you tell?)
He is very proud of his rocket.
Well, Tuesday was the race and he did very well. He came in second place in his race. They took the first and second place winners of each race (for each age group) and raced again. So, in his second race, he came in third place. I was way impressed. He got a little trophy that holds his racer and it has a little plaque on it saying he came in 3rd place in the Space Derby.
