With no distractions like television, cell phones, computers, and the like, there is plenty of time to play games together.
Just a few of our favorites: Phase 10, Skip Bo, Rummy Cube, Rummy (cards), Mexican Train Dominoes, Backgammon, and UNO.
Some of the most precious memories I have with Nate are of playing games around the dining room table. He perfected his card shuffling right before the accident and was so proud. And one night in June, he kept the best attitude when he never picked up a tile that allowed him to start his train. He just sat quietly making an intricate pattern with his many dominos. It was just like him to turn his misfortune into an art project. He may even have enjoyed that more than winning or playing for that matter.
