Chess



My husband enjoys playing chess. In fact since finishing his degree he has had time to read chess books and he plays some of his friends online. I know the basic moves that each player makes but it just requires more thinking then I like for something fun. J has learned to play and seems to enjoy it. We are thankful for various opportunities we have where we live for him to take classes and participate in chess tournaments. It has also been nice for him to be able to play some chess while we are here.

He did a quad the other week and won two out of three games. He also played in a beginners tournament and won a trophy that day.

He has learned, "be aware of Asian girls wearing Hello Kitty shirts".

This is an excellent extra curricula activity that builds so many skills -- thinking and logic as well as patience and paying attention to details.
