I finished our Christmas checkerboard. He had wanted to learn chess so badly a while ago, "because it looks like a kingly sort of game." Gotta love history, right? Anyway, I told him that perhaps it would be wise to start with checkers, and work his way up to the game of kings.
He thought that was a good idea, so I've been piecing this board together in secret, for Christmas. I left the checkers as really simple wool circles, because I have a feeling they'll get replaced with special buttons, or some smooth river stones. And maybe someday, for another gift, he'll be ready for some chess pieces to go on our board.
Have a merry Christmas, we'll see you back here some time next week!
