LEGO derby

With each new phase I am reminded that my kid did not come with an instruction manual. As he grows and learns more about this world of ours he will want to explore and experience more things.

Luckily for him, his mama loves legos just as much as he does (ok maybe a little more).

However, with the love of legos established, I had no idea what I was getting into when he said he wanted to sign up for the LEGO derby with our local ranger group.

I reached out to my dad as well as a friend who helps his nephew with derby races for advice.

What I found was, everyone had a different opinion as to what was best. So I decided we would wing it instead.

We came up with a few design ideas and finally settled on what proved to be a second place winner for best in show. We may not have been fast, but we designed a cool car.

While watching the test run of the track to make sure the computer was working properly I learned a few things to help us for next year.

Our car had weight pretty evenly distributed and it would probably of served us better to have more weight in the front.

I also want to find more flat top pieces for air flow.

I still have a lot of learning to do as a boy mom, but I’ll take small moments like this any day . As a single mama ,you don’t always get a picture of the things you do because you’re too caught up in the event to try to take one yourself. Every moment is precious. Happy building y’all !
