Pinwheel Day | March 19th

On March 19th, we joined forces with hundreds of others and celebrated Pinwheel Day. Pinwheel Day was about making someone's heart spin, eyes twinkle, and day burst with joy in honor of my dear friends' little boy Lincoln. Lincoln passed away just nine days before his second birthday and loved to make things spin. He made my heart spin every time I saw him or snuggled him. Because of him and his amazing family I have learned more about God's love for each of us.
As a way to remember Lincoln, I made pinwheels for each one of Van's friends at preschool. The pinwheels were made out of construction paper, pencils, and sewing pins. I used a template to create the wheel and pinned each one down by pushing the pin through the metal casing around the eraser. We had a few extra and shared them with our neighbors. Van and Gus spent the day running around the yard, pinwheels in hand, watching them spin. We love you Linc!
