Chess Mom

Day four in my “Leaving Loveland” challenge.¬†


Every year since he was in second grade, my boy has competed¬†at Loveland’s district chess tournament. This is his third year. Both years past he won third place in his division, and this morning when we played a practice round he beat me soundly. (In my defense, it was 8 am on a Saturday and I had only had one cup of coffee; and in the past week I beat him a couple times too!)

Now begins a long morning of chess for him and sitting in the middle school library with a passel of other parents for me. Let the games begin!

Note: I’m calling this series of posts a daily challenge but I’ll be taking Sundays off. I like to have one day a week free of social media. So no post tomorrow. And then maybe we’ll actually get to some sunshine and mountains next week!
