The Long Drive Home

Here is a list of questions the boys asked me on the 25 minute drive home from church:

From Cash:
How do school days pass?
How do days turn into seasons?
How do flowers die?
Do roses fold up?

From West:
Why do cars crash?
How does Saturn get cold?

Of course, these questions were just starting points and led to many follow-up questions when I attempted to answer them in a manner that a four-year-old and two-year-old could understand. At one point, Cash was literally sobbing because he couldn't understand my attempts to answer the first question. How the heck do you explain how days pass? I know today was passing VERY SLOWLY until I came up with an explanation he found satisfactory. (Days pass when the sun goes down and then comes back up.) I am not smart enough to have these kids.
