Road Schooling: Games (or should I say Chess)

Hello friends. Well, as you can see chess was the game of choice this summer. They played it on a bed, in a hospital, at the airport, with their Nana and in many other locations. Now I just need to find a portable (also very small) chess set with magnetic pieces for AvaLar. I cannot […]
