Aloha! For this weekend, we go to the movies, watch a landing on Mars, dig into Wailuku history, and find ways for a more sustainable home. 

The Landing of Perseverance

If you missed the momentous landing of Perseverance on Mars yesterday, gather your space-loving family members to watch it here. This story also shares how you can engage your kids around the landing including building your own antennae tower or helicopter.
