Then he turned eight. Can't believe it. He made the decision to get baptized and had a really great day. We are very proud of his choices and the great example he is as a big brother.
With turning eight, we have entered the realm of scouts. This is not something I'm really that familiar with as when my brother became a scout, I was dating Enoch and got married within the year. The uniform, merit badge, meet every week and have pine wood derbys is all new. Lucky for Will, his dad is as excited about the car creation process as Will.
There is a bit of a tradition in the Seegmiller family to make cars that don't look like cars. I'm aware of a car that looked like a tube of toothpaste and one that looked like a Twinkie from their derby days in the 80's. This provided a bit of motivation, and this year, at Will's Pinewood Derby, he was the only car that wasn't designed to look like a car. Instead, it was fashioned after one of his favorite activites...
I'm happy to report that, even though this car wasn't the fastest, the creativity was not all for naught.
