chess fever

after the kids nagged him to, B set up an informal chess-school in the yard.

they caught on quickly and now our yard is the place to be -- there's an ongoing  tournament.

go figure.

$4 chess set + curiosity fostered = some really thinky kids.



  1. Your neighbourhood kids are lucky to have the pair of you... chess and nature walks...

  2. i am fascinated to learn about unschooling ... i am reminded in college there was a program my mother showed me where the students would travel around to different regions of the country depending upon what they were interested in learning. i always regret i didn't pursue it ...

    i love the notion of an on-going out door chess/checker tournaments! your own little Washington Square park :)

  3. Haha! That is so brilliant - no matter how often I see learning like this it still gives me such a buzz. xx
