Kinder Derby

Zachary's kindergarten had a Kinder Derby this year. The form that came home about it informed parents that making the car was a way for the kids and parents to bond. Uh, thanks but no thanks! We would rather bond while playing games together ...

So, Paul brought home a big box from work and some Styrofoam for the egg drop we have in two weeks (maybe more on that later). Anyway, I thought the Styrofoam looked perfect for bumpers, so we decided to use 'em. Zachary wanted light blue, but I wasn't willing to pay triple the price to get light blue instead of dark blue. I know, THAT was bonding!

Anyway, here's his race car ready for the derby (a parade around the school):


As we were walking into the school I couldn't believe some of the vehicles coming in. Some parents REALLY "bonded" with their kids! In any case, I hope this is the last year I have to bond with my kindergartner in this way ...

Here was my favorite car, a little girl in our ward/neighborhood/carpool. Doesn't it remind you of Sully on Monsters Inc.?


And this was all of the boys' favorites. I mean, the Millennial Falcon (?) from Star Wars ... what boy wouldn't love that? It also looks like some SERIOUS bonding.


We got a kick out of watching Zachary sing a few songs for the program part of it -- he really got into them more than I've ever seen him. Paul was able to catch it as well since he had Friday off for Good Friday. Now on to the egg drop for more bonding ...
