So when I found out Appalachian Home Educators was holding a conference I got very excited. I volunteered right away, then volunteered my two oldest girls. :)
Now more excitement for more than just me. They are going to hold a chess tournament!!
(When pieces go missing, improvise with Lego people).
My kids have been playing chess for several years now. They started at a much younger age than I did. When I was a teenager, a cousin of mine and I came across an old chess set at our great-grandmother's old house. We asked if we could have it and that summer we taught ourselves how to play. It's fun and educational! lol Of course I would have to say that.
Anyway, if you are planning on attending the conference, don't forget to sign up for the chess tournament. I have 2 or 3 that plan to sign up. There are two age categories; primary (5-9) and youth (10-18). The only thing they need to know is how to play chess. And if they don't know and are wanting to learn, now is a good time! You have until June 24th to register. Of course the earlier, the better price you pay.
The Appalachian Home Educators Conference is June 26th-28th, 2014. Don't miss it!!!
Until next time...
