I love walking around Cowans Gap. It’s been a few years since we’ve taken the boys. We loaded up on snacks and set off for a slow 1.5 miles around the lake.
We really worked on helping Asher (diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, and Autism) slow down to notice. He is convinced that he needs to hurry and finish things, but today was about the journey and noticing small things like the wooly bear caterpillar on the path, fish in the water, and holes in the trees.
The boys were especially exhausted after our morning adventure and took a long nap.
I love that this state park is just out of reach of mobile reception. It helps me to really go offline for a few hours and just focus on them. I need to do this more often.
