As a reminder to newer readers of the blog, my master plan is to raise nerds. Big ones. Giant in fact.

With my camera in focus, Jack marched proudly up to the instructor to collect his 2nd place medal. As he returned to his seat, he begrudgingly allowed me to take another photo:

Anyway back to chess camp. Daniel raced up to his instructor and grabbed his medal before I could even turn the camera on. He scampered under the nearest table to thwart the intentions of his Jimmy Olsen-like mom.
Like that's going to stop me:
|You can run...but I've got zoom.|
