  • Keystone Ancient Forest ~Sand Springs, OK

    We decided to head out to the Keystone Ancient Forest Saturday to hike the Wilson Trail again.

    We did not realize until we got there that they were hosting an event called “A Walk in the Forest”.

    help

    They had people from the forestry dept. and volunteers out teaching people about forests.

    signs

    They also had signs with information about the trees and forests and a book about them.

    Our trail was not busy at all!

    We only saw two people on it.

    My youngest wanted me to take a picture of some of the treasure he found since we could not take them with us.

    Most parks and especially preserves do not want you to take anything with you.

    They want it there for everyone to enjoy.

    I need to work with my boys on the proper way to ask questions at events like this.

    They interrupt.

    I also realize that they do not handle evolution well.

    They simply told them they do not believe in millions of years so of course the person stopped talking.

    My husband pointed out that they would learn so much more from listening and asking questions versus telling someone they are wrong.

    The people handled this graciously and with kindness but I am going to work with the boys on how we learn from others more.

    Why am I writing this down?

    I use this blog as kind of a journal.

    I am hoping to come back some day, read this, and realize that I have accomplished my goal.

    How do you work with your children on being good listeners?

    I really do enjoy this place and hope you will go check it out!

    There are nice easy paved paths, easy gravel and dirt paths, and a difficult trail for people like us.

    Something for everyone.

    Check out Sand Springs website for when they are open.
