This fall we spent a lot of time learning chess. We went to classes, camps, private lessons and tournaments. We won some games and lost some games. You even got a trophy! But we also had to learn how to work through losing. Little V has been learning Chess too! She learned all the names of the pieces, how to set them up, how the move. She just needs to learn how to checkmate. Little V has learned her abcs and numbers 1 – 20. Now we are working on learning to read and addition. Counting with our fingers or paper clips. Big V got a certificate for getting 100% on his mid year math test at school. He was the only one to get all the question right!
