YAY!!! Good job:)
Congratulations to Matthew! That is just awesome. (whispering--I am ashamed to admit that I've never learned to play chess)
I don't even know how to play.Congratulations.
Congratulations Matthew! It takes a sharp mind to concentrate and anticipate the opponents' moves long enough to rank 14th in the State!. You can be proud of your accomplishment, and definitely thank God for the talent He's given you. Play on!
Congratulations Matthew!!!! That is so exciting! Woo hoo! You are a very smart boy!Jen

WOW Matt...that trophy is awesome...and you earned it!!! WAY COOL....I am impressed!! Maybe you could teach Luke to play chess and all of the other cousins that don't play...then when we go to Grandmas next, you guys could have a chess competition (tournament??...whatever it's called)....yea...instead of the play station Bond Wars...I know your mom would be on my side!! Congrats!!!
