Chess, anyone?

This is a great age to learn chess. Hannah has been teaching Olivia and now they both can play! Unfortunately, Lusy, our dog, wags her tail right beside our coffee table quite often and in the past month, or so, we've lost two rooks and a pawn!

I've changed the header, but will change soon! If anyone wants, feel free to copy any header I made and edit to your liking, adding a picture of you or your family. I welcome the cool weather...and hope for a big snowfall this winter! We had so much fun sledding last year.

Oh, about the teeth...about 6 months first tooth for my girls, but seems in our family five is the normal age for getting "adult" teeth!

WOWSERS! That is SO nice of you! Maybe I'll take you up on the offer and get a header!
I have no clue how to play chess. My oldest LOVES it, though. Maybe one day I'll try to learn...

That picture is so sweet! Great chess skills!

Ha ha ha...yeah, we've been using various things in place of the rook...I think the best choice was NOT cars, but coins (they're small enough and don't fall over)!

Very cool. Maybe they can teach me next. It's our cat we have to watch over. Spot is always stealing our things. Oh yeah and, tag you're it, check out my blog today.

I didn't know you can teach them that young for CHESS. I haven't introduced it to JNA yet, but maybe I will try this year or 2009. They have lots of CHESS sets here & some are Medieval knight characters. I even saw a Winnie the Pooh character. I like ur new header.
