last night, jackson came into our room to ask us if he could go to today's chess tournament if his baseball playoff was rained out. well, the game was rained out, and we hopped in the car at 9:20 to get all the way to montebello ny so he could play some chess.
less than 2 hours later the kid was standing in front of about 30 kids and their parents with a gigundo 1st place trophy. again. now his baseball team needs to have the same high level of performance tomorrow after the rain stops and the field dries out. double-header if they win. then finals next weekend.
