Check Mate

We had a visit from MG and Kath today. The kids had fun playing all sorts of games but MG's favourite was a chess game with Grandpa :-)

So cute, San. Kind of strange to see Dave referred to as "Grandpa." Does she really know how to play this? Do you call her MG?

She has a good go with some of theceasier moves and then tries to make up a few of her own rules!! I shorten her name on the blog but she is generally known as Mary x

yes, i agree, this is just the sweetest photo! and dave must be the best chess teacher :) how clever of her to try and make up her own rules! very creative :D (i feel like it was just yesterday that she was born!)

Sandra Ann said...

Me too! She is loving school and has the starting role of Mary in the whole school nativity, not bad for four and a half :-) x

Oh this is so sweet! We start chess by 4 in our house too :-) both with my kids, and I played with my father before starting school aged 5 ...

Need to encourage Pip! Both her and Ben love Carcassone and Pip's favourite is backgammon :-)

DH here - MG is the only Mary in the school, so maybe she has an assured Christmas role for her time at the school.

So lovely to catch up with your blog San :) I like to play chess with the boys - they have picked up the rules much quicker than I expected, and are getting close to beating me these days!
God bless you and your family,
Carly xx
