I hope those are words out of Lucy's mouth many times this weekend.
She (and Dan and Finn) are traveling to Nashville this morning so she can compete in the Chess Supernationals. The Chess Supernationals (we keep calling it the Chess Supernaturals) is a once-every-four-years event in which 6000 children from all over the US come to play chess. Lucy will play seven games over the next three days. Her goals are relatively modest: to win more than she loses. I am very proud that she is excited and not very nervous about it. Somehow, she takes things in stride and doesn't get flustered about the competition. Once the game is going, she is focused and her only goal is to win. Please don't ask how she comes by this quality. Dan and I just look on with wonder and awe.
Go, Lucy, go!
