Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week. Monday was Martin Luther King Day, a holiday to celebrate the birthday of a great man. This is the only U.S. holiday observed as a day of service as a way to build a stronger community. I took the day off to volunteer at a school with my daughter Kailee. It was an older school so there were projects that included cleaning the classrooms, gardening, building benches and painting. We chose to paint a garden for the pre-K and Kindergarten classes. The organizers had pre-drawn the flowers and coded each section by color, so it was really easy for us to do. Since it was outside we were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day (the day before was raining hard). My daughter and I had a fun day and it felt good to give back to the community. Here are some pictures from the day:
The rest of the week was just our normal schedule – work and school for the kids. Nothing exciting except it did rain a lot, which is a good thing. It is nice to see everyone’s front lawns green again.

Around the blogosphere
Check out DC Films first look at the upcoming movies Justice League, Wonder Woman and the Suicide Squad. At first I wasn’t sure if I would like Wonder Woman because of the actress but this clip looks really good. I can’t wait to see these movies.
Here is a funny a Star Wars Kylo Ren ‘Undercover Boss’ spoof on SNL.
How was your week?
