Laura and Jamie at Grandma's House - Page Two
July, 2002

They dug out the old Chess and Checkers set, and started with a game of checkers. As usual, Jamie quick hammed it up just as I was about to snap the picture

Then they switched to chess.  It was very interesting.  Laura has been "formally" taught, and Jamie claims to have never played a game, but to have observed her dad and his friend play.

They both knew all the moves, all the rules, and played a darn good game.  This "contemplative" pose of Jamie's is not staged...she was actually sitting and playing like that!

Of course, the "serious" mood could only last so long, and before long they started to get squirelly.  I think Laura won the game, but it went down to the wire.
