Congratulations, Jack!

Jack was invited to his first chess tournament this weekend. We figured it would be a good experience and a lot of fun for him, so he went. We didn't expect him to win or place, of course. He hasn't been playing chess for very long.

But he did.

Jack won third place in a field of 16! We're proud of him - - that's not bad at all. :D

Even better, he had fun and had a chance to play basketball between rounds of chess. (Four times, he tells me.)

So, it was a nice weekend, but that was the high point.
