The girls had a chess tournament over the weekend. It was a long long long day, but a good day. We started at 8:30 and finished around 2:00. Emmitt and Kenna had to attend as well, and did great considering the long day we all had couped up in the school's gym. Kelsey played in the 5th & 6th grade division and ended up at 4th place. Kendal played in the K-2 grade division and won a sweet medal. She was a little devastated when she didn't win a trophy. When she asked me why she didn't win one, and I told her "You have to win the chess matches honey, not just win pieces when you play." Kendal said "You mean you have to beat other kids to get a trophy?" The thought astonished her! She cracks me up. We had a good day together, me and my little chess players!
