Check Mate!

So we are here at the chess tournament in Lansing. This is just a quick post, asking for good luck thoughts to be sent our way! This is Noah's last year, and he is playing 1st board, 1st team, meaning he is up against the best players from other teams. Our team is usually pretty decent, but we are no where near the caliber of some of the other teams that meet daily and compete in tournaments all the time!

Noah is quite positive he is going to "medal" this year. I'm hoping he does too! He would be soooo thrilled! He missed a medal last year by 1/2 a point!!!!

Ricky is 2nd board 2nd team in his age bracket. He has no idea what he is in for. He thought he was at the chess tournament last night at the hotel. As we were going to bed, he asked "What did we need those shirts for if we didn't even play chess?" Hoping he doesn't have a nervous breakdown when he sees the 100's of kids he will be up against!

Thanks for the thoughts, I'll post more later!

Remind me to tell the story of Grass Hogs and Guinea Cats. :)

God is good. All the time!
