Saturday Matt, Kelsey, and Kendal headed down to the U of U for the Girls State Chess Tournament. Kelsey loves playing chess and is pretty dang good at it. Emmitt and I stayed home. I had strep, an ear infection, and I have a stinking broken finger! Anyway . . .
Kelsey played 5 matches and came out at 2nd place in the 2nd grade division. She had a great time and she said she made 2 new friends, Amy and Madison. It was a great experience for her. The State Chess Tournment is next month. This one includes the dang males too. Chess is definitely a male dominated deal, so we will see if she wants to attend and how well she does. She placed the last 2 years she went, just not as well as when she just plays with the girls!
