Sometimes I get distracted and he tells me the answer and then I have to check and see if he was right. Makes car rides not so relaxing. Thankfully when I put classical music on that usually gets him singing and humming and slightly distracted. : ) On long trips we thankfully have a whole basket of mind puzzles and math stuff to keep his brain nourished.


For our car rides I am commissioned with handing out questions in all areas and you would think after 44 years and being an educator I could think of many questions...but I get brainlocked after a while...guess I should look at it as anti-alzheimer's training. :-)
