a dad's second childhood

So...we're making cub cars.
...need I say more?

And this year there's 2 to do!!

Thankfully the boys have great leaders who have been very helpful.
I just don't get it.
Perhaps it's because Bruce and I are less than capable when it comes to power tools-we've never really tried, actually. There's even a movie about a pinewood derby. It's a bit over the top- atleast I thought it was.
But the zeal with which I see people talk about axle positions, proper weighting, paint jobs...well, now I'm not so sure.
it blows my mind.

Pictures to come once the cars are complete- we wouldn't want to give the competition an edge.

I don't like to toot my own horn...but this isn't really MY horn

I promise that one day this will once again become the quaint, witty, sometimes humorous/sometimes serious, family blog you have come to love to read. (j/k).

But not today.

Today, it's about " the new baby" (see previous post -I guess I am still humorous-or is that sarcastic?). As you know, Bruce started a new business last month (WHO opens shop in December of all months?!) As you can well guess, everything we say, do, think, breathe has been about "the clinic". Hence-no Christmas card/letter from the Stewart's this year.
I'm not complaining- life is good! Every day another miracle presents itself.
I'm just saying thanks to all of you who still talk to us because you pretty much know how the conversation's gonna go before it even starts!
This week FIT Physiotherapy was featured in the Lethbridge Journal. They did a nice article. For your reading enjoyment, check it out. Let it load-notice the coverpage. Yes, that treadmill is there (and it is as awesome as it looks/sounds). Story on page 9.
Thanks again everyone( friends, family, blogstalkers, etc). We wish you all a happy, successful and FIT New Year :)
