It Must be Spring

Here in NC, our Springs run the gamut from freezing to feeling like Summer, usually on the same day.  Today the forecast was 80 degrees; the morning was cool but warm enough to go outside, so we started the day on the playground.  It wasn't long before a parent drove up.  A boy got out of the car wrapped head to toe in his blanket, with his mother following behind him carrying the tail like a bride's train.  As they went inside, I waited for him to come out still wrapped in a blanket, but he didn't appear.  A minute later, he and his mom walked back towards the car and he re-emerged wearing a big, puffy, winter coat over top of a short-sleeved shirt and shorts. 
It truly is hard to dress for a NC spring.
