DS6.5 started last week playing "Kid Chess" once per week at school. On Tuesday, when I picked him up, the chess coach overheard me saying I was there to pick up DS, and he went on and on how he has yet to teach DS more than a few basics, and is truly amazed at 1. how quickly he's picked it up and 2. how he studies the entire game as opposed to just the move (as in he's thinking ahead). He's only played chess a handful of times with me, and it's been at least a year since the last time and that's it. It was a very proud Mom moment. The chess coach is very excited to teach him more (me too)!
