  1. Great stuff Margaret!

  2. Wow! Good for you, Margaret! I’m so impressed. By the way, Marty McLaren, the candidate challenging Sundquist for a spot on the Seattle School Board, lives at Puget Ridge Cohousing and I know her from our years there. She’s a lovely person with a good heart. I know little about her stance on public education, but I know she’s solid and very well-intentioned.
    I love your blog. Good for you for making this dream a reality.
