Teaching Grandchildren is Playing

Chess across generations

This is another of my grandsons, one of three four who play chess with me.  The other two are too young yet to be able to play.  Regardless of their abilities, the boys take their turns winning and losing or playing to a draw.  And, there is fun had by all.

Grandparenting continues as we go through the days together.  Of course there are quiet times when we have four laptops all going as games are played as well as an old PS1.  With quiet time done, it’s off to play boisterous games outside: football, catch, cricket, yoyos (zombies version) ring toss, golf toss and bocce are the favorites here.

Today is the last full day of grandparenting.  Tomorrow afternoon the last grandson boards a plane with his Dad to complete the process of leaving the paternal and maternal home for their own homes.
