Like Chess? I do!

7 Basic Principles of Chess -
1. Play for Center Control.
2. Open with a Center Pawn.
3. Don't develop your Queen early.
4. Develop Knights before Bishops.
5. Don't move the same piece Twice.
6. Castle Early, shelter your King.
7. Don't attack without Justification.

Some Pictures...

This is Winnie. He's doing swell.
This word Digression explains Herodotus (a man who wrote a book called the "Histories" which me and some of my cousins are reading for school)
very well because he goes off on so many rabbit trails all throughout his work.
Jared's birthday was last week and here's a picture of him goofing off.
We went to a chess club last week and I played Ellie. She sure is getting good!
Here's Kolten, Collin, Matthew, & Alex playing intense games.
I sure hope some of us can go to the upcoming tournament!

This weekend...

Yes, well there wasn't much going on this weekend other than that my Grandparents along with several of my aunts and uncles are in Hawaii having a BLAST without everyone here in OR. Besides that I didn't do much.

Oh yes, I did go to a tournament. How could I forget. It was a lot of fun seeing old friends and meeting many new ones. Giving speeches and watching many. Overall, I had a grand time! (that does not include getting up every morning at 5:30 a.m.)

In conclusion, I look forward to the future and what it holds. Or should I say, "I look forward to what GOD HOLDS!"

Have a wonderful evening.
