Overheard: Chess Anyone?

Youngest Son: "I am going to play chess against myself."

American Mommy in Mexico: " Okay ... who do you think will win?"

Youngest Son: "I don't know."

The scene shows Youngest Son playing Chess and Oldest Son outside on patio with Housekeeper's Son (who only speaks Spanish and often comes to play) drawing pictures.

Too cute! My Oldest Son wants to learn to play, but I don't know how. I can't seem to find anyone that knows how to play, and I haven't been able to find simple instructions either. But this post reminded me to keep looking!

How sweet! I noticed the beach towels, do you remember one of your first post that featured the beach towels? For some reason it made an impression on me.

I love kids.

LL - There are websites that actually teach and have interactive play - you might google to find some. Husband plays and Oldest Son played after school in USA. I am not much of a player -not enough patience.

TM - Oh yes I remember the post well. These towels have been one of our best gifts received when we headed south. Funny that you would remember as well!

A - Amen
