MIAGD: Make it a great day
Kettering’s Holiday At Home Festival began yesterday with the fair setting in Lincoln Park and kicks off today with the mini-marathon and then the parade at 10:00 AM.
The city’s workers were already at work by 4:00 AM setting up barriers around the parade route. The school parking lot next to the house is for buses and other parade vehicles.
Neko, experiencing his first Labor Day, is holding his position at the kitchen window surveying the comings and goings of this busy morning.
Since 2007, I’ve watched this parade with the Bane family, Tony, Angela, Jacob, Ellie, and Noah. Today, only Angela and I will watch the parade together. Ellie will be in the parade, Jacob is working, and Tony and Noah have tickets to a Reds baseball game.
Today seems like a celebration of summer’s end, as well as celebrating the continuity of life… kids growing up and all the many other wonderful changes we take for granted.
Happy Labor Day and make it a great day.
