Pinwheel, pinwheel spinning around

Before Mother Nature decided to reneg on spring, we spent some more time on the porch together, soaking in the warm weather and sunny days. William loves being outside. It actually doesn't matter to him if it is warm or cold, he just really enjoys being out of the house. The only time we have to worry about taking him outside is in the heat of the summer, as some of his medications decrease his body's ability to sweat.

Sometime in the past couple of months, we became the proud owners of a new multi-colored pinwheel. I don't remember where it came from. All I know is that all three of my kids love it. We put it in the planter on the back porch so that we can all see it spin when the wind blows. Matt likes to make a game out of taking it out of the planter and seeing how fast he has to be to get the dirty end in his mouth before someone takes it away from him. Fun for him, not so much for us.

Will also loves the pinwheel, especially when it spins. He focuses right on it, and smiles big when it goes around and around. He is super proud of himself when he is the one who makes it spin. It takes a lot of work, but the pay off is great!
