This is very belated. I promised Nick a sneak peek of his session and then Labor Day weekend happened. I never realized quite how important the holiday actually was. I celebrated - clearly! - by not laboring.*
No matter. Here is the charming senior from Kettle Moraine High School...Nick!
The tree he is leaning against is actually a very significant tree. Nay, nay, it's not your average, regular tree. It's the largest tree of its type** in the state of Wisconsin. Or the world. I can't quite remember which one it was that he said.
*It was bothering me that I didn't really know why we celebrate Labor Day. From the U.S. Department of Labor website:
"Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."
It was passed as a bill by Congress in 1894. So there. Now you know.
**Yet another example of my ignorance about things found in nature and gardens. I have no idea what kind of tree that is. But she's a giant beauty!
Need some light entertainment while having your senior pictures taken? I would be glad to offer my services. I guarantee you will love your photos. The jokes you hear? Eh.
