Raingutter Rigatta

Porter loves scouts so much. For their last activity they had the Raingutter Rigatta, and he had such a great time. His boat was LEGO themed and he painted it to look like little green, red, and blue LEGO blocks, and he put two LEGO men to man the sails. It was quite the masterpiece. We were a little rushed getting to the race, but we made it, although it was a bit of a rocky start because he had his mom (who thinks looks are everything and doesn't understand the importance of rutters) helping him. We got a bit of a late start on our boat, but he finished it and we got to the event on time, but when he put his boat in the water it tipped right over. He was embarrassed and cried a little, but Casey was there so he was able to run home and get the rutters and rework the boat in time for the actual races. Porters boat won the first two races and lost the third. He had a great time and told me "When Bennett and Miles do scouts make sure you put the rutters on their boats".

This was so deja'vu. Do you remember your first pinewood derby? You wanted a dinosaur car and we spent the entire time on design and then when we raced it down the track in the first race the wheels fell off and everybody laughed and you started to cry!!! the apple didn't fall to far from the tree.
