As for my girls, they went to their first day of ballet class at the Y today. I'm not sure exactly what they did since we parents weren't allowed to watch since we would pose a distraction. They sure looked cute in their pink leotards and tights, but I didn't get any photos. I'm pretty sure it wasn't as hard as shucking oysters, though.

96 years ago, these kids (8 years old and up) were gainfully employed 7 hours per weekday and 10 on Saturdays shucking oysters. No obesity epidemic then. They all look reasonably cheerful except for the future serial killer in the center back row. I wonder how much they earned in 2008 dollars?
