Chess, anyone?

My 7 year old took an afternoon to teach me to play chess...he doesn't think I'm catching on very fast, but I'm trying. :)

  1. I love chess! I've been playing since I was a teenager (my brother taught me). Now I'm trying to teach my hubby. Um... he's not catching on so fast. LOL!

    Thank you for sharing with us on Mommy and Me!

  2. So adorable! I can't imagine my little girls that big!

  3. So I guess you son won? :) I could never get the hang of chess myself.

  4. How sweet of your son :D btw, chess is really great for mind exercising :D

  6. Wasn't that nice of him? My hubby tried to teach me. I decided I didn't care!

  7. Good news...I've improved my game and actually won yesterday!

  8. Accckkk!!!! Chess! I think I'm getting a hive right now from thinking about trying to learn it!

    You look too young to have a son that age!

    You two look more like siblings!

  9. son likes to play chess with me too...but maybe because I am about as "savvy" with chess as I am with computers! (Which you can tell is not my expertise, considering I am happy to get one post up a week...cuz it takes me for.ever to get one put together! :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    When he is home from college, we actually love to play a game called Sunka from the Philippines -the "board" is made of a carved out wood with shells or pebbles as the pieces...sort of like Mancala....or cards :o)
