Go Star Lord! Chris Pratt’s hometown is Lake Stevens, WA and he brought some locals to his new home, on San Juan Island, to kick up the dirt. You see, the Lake Stevens softball team recently qualified to represent Washington State at the Special Olympics USA Games and Chris wanted to give them a special send-off so he brought them out to San Juan Island to challenge them to a game. Check this out, it will make your day and Chris, this was awesome.
If that hasn’t given you enough warm fuzzy feelings, he also stopped by the elementary school a couple of months ago to talk to the students about kindness. He even focused on the importance of siblings being kind to one another by sharing a story about how supportive his own brother has always been. My kids were sitting in the audience and took it all in. Thanks for that one, we bring it up all of the time. (Not that my kids EVER squabble with each other. Ever. **HA!**)
