Raingutter Regatta

Yesterday, Ben's Boy Scout pack had their annual regatta race. Greg and Ben worked on the boat all week, with Ben doing most of the work.  He painted and decorated it by himself, with a few tips from Dad.  The whole family (including Louis) headed to Teague park on Saturday morning to have the boat registered and inspected.  There were over 50 entries, so it took a looong time before Ben's boat sailed.  But sail it did.  It was so awesome to see him win!  He won for the Wolf division and then won second place in the championship race! He was so proud to add that first place ribbon to his uniform! The boys had lunch and played afterwards until Sadie let us know she was ready for a nap :)

That is so GREAT. I am glad he did so well, I know he was very proud as were his parents no doubt. Thanks again for letting Emily come over. The nap really helped.
