Permit me a proud mama moment. Here’s a picture of my youngest son with his teammates on his elementary school chess team. D is in the middle with the trophy in front of him. He also won a 5th place medal in the individual competition. He and his teammates played five rounds of chess over a 7-hour tournament and turned in great performances. I’ve been taking my sons to this tournament every year for 7 years and this is the first time any of them have been part of the No. 1 team. It was a nice moment. Just to D’s right is his friend R. They’ve been in school together (often in the same classroom) since they were in kindergarten. I looked up a photo of the two of them back in those days.
