William has really been enjoying Checkers lately, and even brought his board on our camping trip! Today, he wanted to up the stakes a bit and give Chess a try.....So we both sat down at the kitchen table and I tried to remember what all of those little chess pieces do! It has been years since I have played, and I certainly wasn't very good then. Still, there is nothing like a child's enthusiasm for something to get you excited about it, too. And, wonderfully, when I logged on to our homeschool group message board this evening, another mom had posted asking about any interest in starting a kids chess / checkers club in the fall - YEAH! I guess some things were just meant to be.
