This Monarch coin was released today to Andy. Andy shares a passion for the Monarch Butterfly along with me, my mother, and my great niece! He has learned so much through his research, talking with other Monarch fans, and through hands on experience in rearing his own Monarch at home. He has even learned a little from the Riverdale Elementary Kindergarten team and students! Andy is a photographer for our local news station. He is capturing the amazing life cycle of the Monarch through various lenses. His talent in capturing the life cycle will help his viewers gain an appreciation for this beautiful creature that visits us every spring and summer. Because of his passion for this little critter of nature and his kindness in sharing it, this coin is passed on to him. Thank you Andy for having the idea to create this news series and for all of the time you have spent with the Riverdale Kindergarten, as well as with my mom and great niece, learning about one of nature's coolest creatures! I hope you find someone who also spreads kindness just as you are doing and pass this coin along to them! Do good and fly on Andy!

As a butterfly flies from place to place so does this coin. His new travel experience is across the Mississippi and into Davenport, Iowa and the home of LuAnn Sharp. As LuAnn goes through a very difficult time may this adventure bring a smile to her life. She is a very creative person who loves the outdoors and has the most beautiful habitat for natures wonders. Our families have been friends for many years and we have watched her children grow from birth to be successful young adults. This is another fun way for us to share a new experience together. LuAnn is a retired teacher and used her wisdom to lead so many young people down the right path. Including myself by encouraging me with the strength to return to teaching after being a stay at home Mom. Onward together tracking our butterflies adventures.
