The day before the Pinewood Derby race, the cars have to pass inspection.

They can’t be too long, too high and must be no heavier than 5 ounces.

We walked into the school and a dozen dads were working on cars,
adding or removing weight trying to reach 5 ounces.

Little Man’s car weighed 5.0 ounces exactly.

Little Lady’s car was 4.8 ounces and extra sparklie.

The Love Bugs come visit us from Love Bug Island every year between
New Years and Valentine’s Day.

Each child has a mailbox which they can send notes to the Love Bugs.

The Love Bugs send notes, candy and gifts back to the kids.

Here, the kids are writing a song to the Love Bugs.
