What are you up to this weekend? My fourth grader has a chess tournament today, and honestly, I love that he gets the experience but I kind of dread them. They last for hours and hours and usually I have my four year old in tow. For some reason, watching people play chess in silence for six hours isn't his idea of a good time. BUT . . . Today I am not secretly dreading the chess tournament because it is being hosted by our city's annual India Festival! My fourth grader can play chess while we while away the hours shopping through the colorful wares and filling our bellies with awesome Indian food. Win/Win!
