Wrapping up April, what season will we have tomorrow?

We had snow last week, enough to play in!  Then it warmed up into the 70s over the weekend.  Tuesday we broke out the stroller and went for a nice walk.  It froze last night and this morning is still below freezing!  It's difficult for M2, who wants to be outside riding his bike as much as possible.  I should bundle up baby and get out there with them, but I just don't want to bring him out when it is so cold.

M2 finished preschool last week.  They had pj day for the last day.  He is ready for kindergarten to start ASAP.  The end of April has been a little frustrating for M2.  Hopefully he'll move into summer mode soon and start having some fun.  He's been working on his reading skills at the Starfall website and we've been reading together.  I need to pull some things together so that he can have "school" while M3 and M4 nap.

 M4 is becoming more fun to play with instead of just entertain.  And he wants to get into whatever the big kids have, if he can.  That's great when they want to help him play with baby toys, less great when Rebecca wants to sit by him to read a chapter book.  Yesterday he was watching Catie and I play with blocks and kept flopping over to try to push her tower over.  Frustrating and exciting for her at the same time - he wants to play, but...

If he has something near to him he must try to go up onto his knees.  He has trouble getting down gracefully though and often flops on his face.
