Chess aka Chest

Cooper and Katie are taking chess lessons after school on Wednesdays.

Cooper has played for years. Katie is just learning. (And she calls it "chest.")

Yesterday she beat a fourth-grader, who is also a beginner. Nevertheless, Katie is impressed that she, a kindergartener, could beat someone as old as her brother.

After she told me about winning, Cooper gently scolded her. "You shouldn't really brag about that."
