Tuesday, September 5, 1882 was the first Labor Day holiday in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The first Monday in September was selected as the holiday in 1884.
Our day today was not laborious. We started with a trip to the movies.
Waiting while Mom buys tickets.
Chowing down on popcorn while we wait for Pete’s Dragon to begin.
Also while waiting, Katie’s second front tooth exited. I was honored with the task of keeping it safe until we got home.
Next stop was Home Depot for home improvements for the new house.
The guys bonding while the rest of us did minor chores.
Enjoying the fruits of his labor.
For dinner we had a “picnic” at the dining room table—salad and grilled hot dogs (Beth) , and warm cherry pie (Matt). Yum!
Tomorrow is Mel’s first day of (pre)school. She is looking forward to it. We are looking forward to a respite from the little whirlwind.
