Our Saturday in pictures

Today, Travis' cub schout pack had their Pinewood Derby race. He was SO excited from the moment he ever heard about this. He wanted to build Speed Racer.

His car raced 4 races and came in 2nd, 2nd, 2nd and 1st!!!

Riley needed a little snooze after Travis' group raced

Then it was time to eat, where he couldn't keep his eyes off my plate

Before any of the races, the cars were judged for all sorts of things, and Travis' won "fastest looking". He was proud.

This evening, we had a great, impromptu visit from one of the Peds Chaplins from DUKE. We met her one of Riley's first days up there. Back when we were broken and crying about every word we spoke. Back then, she pretty much just stood with us, as we couldn't speak much. As he got better, she would drop by to visit. She prayed with us several times, most notably before his very first surgery and came by right afterwards to check on him. She's special to us, and we were thrilled when she called to say she was down our way. We said "come on by"! Riley was pretty happy to see Megan also!

Wow! What a great day your family had. Travis, you sure did build a fine looking derby car. It really does look fast, and I loved the little driver you put inside. I guess you proved it was a "speed racer", coming in 2nd, 2nd, and then 1st! Great Job CONGRATULATIONS Travis!!
Riley looked like he enjoyed himself also, and what a pleasant surprise, for you to get to visit with Megan again. She must have been so thrilled to see Riley looking, and doing so great at home. What a wonderful reunion for all of you.
Hugs and Blessings, Dale
