Art City Elementary has a thriving chess club of which Brevin and Spencer are a part. They attend every Thursday morning before school. This is the second year the boys have been involved, and I have loved that it has become one of their hobbies. They recently participated in a tournament that was held at the school for several hours on a Saturday.
As they waited between rounds, they played card games, watched movies, and ate snacks. Jason and I had a chance to be there and watch as they played a few of their matches. We were also there when the final results came in. Spencer managed to take fifth place in his grade. Brevin was in a much larger group and he finished just shy of the trophy standings. I think he was a little disappointed, but I was proud of his improved overall score from his last tournament. I think he was cheered up when Art City Elementary won first place as a school. Besides, spending a day playing chess and hanging out with friends is much more fun than Saturday chores.
