Lego Car Race

The kids and I went to the library this morning, since Rebekah had told us there was a Lego event going on.  With the word Lego in it, I knew it would be something Keenan was interested in. =)

They had several tables set up and bins and bins of Lego for the kids to play with!!

Keenan and Elijah picking pieces

Moriah building

The woman leading the group told the kids that they should (if they wanted to) build a Lego race car an there would be a race!

Now it's serious business

Cute Elijah

Finding just the right pieces

Keenan's car

Moriah's car

Elijah's car

Doing some practice runs on the track


Then it was the time everyone had been waiting for....

She had all the kids line up and then divided them by age into heats of two
(The goal was to have your car go the farthest)

Moriah won her first heat (against a 6 year old!)

Keenan won his first heat against Elijah

Winners lined up on one side

Moriah lost her second heat

Serious just before his second heat

Yeah!

Final race (his car is actually slightly behind in this picture, but it kept going when the other one stopped

With his medal and bag of candy (quite the prize!)

It was just a silly car race, but I was soo proud of him! =)
