He went to a Chess Camp on Monday and came home with a medal for winning four tournaments. He seemed very pleased with himself.
When David and Lisa relocated from Dallas to Seattle, David organised for Jackson to go to Chess Camp during the summer vacation and Jackson became convinced that the whole reason for relocation was so he could go to Chess Camp.
It worked in well for the family that he thought so.
On Wednesday afternoons he has a chess class after school finishes. David and I picked him afterwards. We asked him what he learnt at chess that day and he said, 'notations'.
When questioned further he seemed not to know what notations meant.
However yesterday, when Lisa and I returned from a lovely day out we found David and Jackson just finishing a game of chess and there was Jackson making those notations.
On your way, chess champ!
