Not supposed to be

We just came back from a long (supposed to be) vacation. In fact, the vacation felt so short, I would say it last no longer than a chess game.

Abe, I felt, was curious to everything on the trip, the farmers’ market was definitely different there:

The land was poor, so were the people, but kids could still be happy. Not supposed to be?

I would think Abe was happy too most of the time. I took a picture when he was playing basketball with his little brother.

No court, no hoop, no problem. “I love this game”. Not supposed to be?

It is winter time, it is cold outside. But we found some people are playing “chess” behind a wall on street.

Let’s zoom the picture out to the street view.

When Abe was bored with everything else, he played some chess games with the computer during the vacation. No one asked him, another not supposed to be.

Tension here

Another weekend, another chess tournament. Another IL class (here is 2009 IL class) and another year.  Same cold snowy day outside, same hot tension inside.

Hope you enjoy everything, whether it is  the snow, or it is the tension, whether you are young or you are old.

Talking about something without tension, Abe’s little bother likes to “read” books, but according to Mommy, he only reads the page numbers. However, he still looks enjoying it:

Whatever you do, try to enjoy it, even you can’t grasp everything of it.

We are on the way to our vacation, will be back after Christmas.

Have good Holidays, why not.
