It’s back to school time, and vacations and lazy days are in the rearview mirror.

While there are still warm months ahead, we usually recognize the Labor Day holiday as the unofficial end of summer.

It may be hard to say goodbye for another year, but we’re here to ease the blow with some fun ideas to create last-minute summertime memories.

Labor Day is often a time for family cookouts or one last trip to the pool or beach.

But many kids (and even parents) don’t know the real reason we celebrate Labor Day.

The first Monday in September was designated an official holiday by Congress in 1884 to honor hardworking Americans and celebrate their part in the prosperity of our nation.

It is often a welcome day off for working Americans and a perfect time to kick back, relax and reflect.

Our kids may wonder why Mom or Dad go off to work each day, and this is a great time to talk to them about how we all work certain jobs to keep our country strong.

Just like we all work together as a family doing different chores and support each other so the home runs smoothly, American workers do this on a larger scale – so Labor Day really is a celebration of American strength and freedom.
