When we go to Cracker Barrel, the youngest likes to play checkers with me.
As he's gotten older, I try to make the games tougher.
But he often has tricks up his sleeve.
The last time, I jumped a bunch of his men and got him down to three. He decided it was time to swap sides, and thus he won.
Today, he had a little Lego figure from the Halo series.
Instead of a king, he had a soldier.
A soldier that blasted my checker pieces from three spots away.
The game was over pretty quick. At least he's creative in ways to beat dad at checkers.
