Neta, week#28

They play chess. for real.
After Yuval taught them all the rules he recommended they start with a small set of the pieces to practice but they decided to ignore him.

They play with joy and emotions. They make all kind of first moves (like – starting with knight). They don't mind what counts, what's right.

Though Aur cries if she loses the game (or two pieces of the same kind), it seems that Neta plays from her heart. She just enjoys it. She doesn't mind who wins.
They cooperate and consult each other during the game and make deals (I won't take your piece, you won't take mine etc..).

Sometimes in the middle of the game Aur disappears. She still sits there but her eyes lay on a book and her mind is in Hogwarts, probably. Slowly her legs slide till they hit the board. Neta looks at the pile of kings and pawns on the floor and with no anger says – "OK, let's start a new game".


Her trial to fill a blank multiplication table ended with an addition table.

While calculating and observing she figured that when moving diagonally from cell to cell, the results are different by 2.


Writing practice this week: Hebrew, English, HIragana (Japanese) and her own set of hieroglyphs.
