It's Practice Night


We cut it. We sanded it. We painted, wheeled and aligned it. Then we graphited the snot out of it and tonight, she's gonna run....

seems like you took that picture in the mirror, no?

I could tell because your "La Vida Loca" tattoo is backwards.....

Kelsey's Macbook iSight camera, which does that automatically, which is a completely stupid feature.

Randy,

Word of advice. I have been in my share of races in my life so I might know a bit what I am talking about here.

Slim the car down. It always seemed as though the slimmer cars always went faster for some reason.

Also put graphit around the wheels so they spin faster. I was going to tell yout this sooner but forgot to.

You cant go for style in these things. Its all about slimming it down.

Make the whole car a slant downwards. You know what I mean? move the weight to the front aswell.

You dont have to follow my wisdom though. I want Gray to win this thing because I never did.

Did you "honey, I shrunk the kid's project?" I was thinking Grayson was going to be driving it. Better up my reading skills.

Mrs. I said...

Win or lose, what Grayson is going to remember is working on this project with his Dad and having the support of his family. Great memories for all of you -
Go Bohlenders!

The Awana Grand Prix was the low point of my life as a parent ....kid after kid would lose miserably.... year. after year.after year.... We kicked some major booty in the Bible Quiz but never the Grand Prix. Until I gave up on speed and went for design- yeah baby...... a polly pocket in a bubble bath car, a furry mouse on a swiss cheese car, a robot car! The trophies poured in.... Keep your gaphite and your aerodynamics- hand me the glue gun honey!

Steeno,
I'm a bit concerned. I'm feeling that you may have some unresolved issues from childhood, that are just about to erupt. If you would like some counseling for "inner healing" please feel free to contact John and I we'd be more than willing to help you work through this.
I'm praying for you bud!

Tracie
