The boys and dad worked on the cars for a couple of weeks. The night before the race we went to the church and tested out the boys' cars. They were not very fast! We talked with the boys about how it is o.k. to not always win and it is about the experience. The morning of the race the boys were excited and I was nervous about their reactions when they lost! After several races it came down to the boys racing against each other for 1st place in overall race. Trenton won 1st place in overall race and Gavin got 2nd. Gavin was so exhausted that he just started crying when he lost for 1st. Little did he know that he received 1st in overall show and Trenton received 2nd. The Barker boys took home some prizes.
|This was at the award ceremony. Neither of the boys knew that they had each placed 1st in one area and 2nd place in the other.|
As always, I was one proud momma of all my boys!
