Play Checkers with me Papa

Checkers was one of the first board games I ever learned. Both my Grandfathers loved to play checkers and I can remember many times playing against them. So when our four year old Granddaughter asked her Papa to play checkers with her, it brought back those childhood memories....
   She asked little questions, but listened quietly as Papa told her how to play... 
She thought about each move...
Checkers teaches a child how to become patient when waiting for the opponents turn. It also teaches math skills. But that wasn't on the mind of either our granddaughter nor her Papa... 
They were sharing and making a memory that they both would never forget and either will I.
