Some observations from my #pregnancy so far (personal and not true for all). A never ending thread: 1) Your mother always seems to remember a “magical” pregnancy until you are definitely pregnant and then suddenly her memory serves up all the drama, hormones and heartburn.

My undergraduate thesis looked at school rates of vaccines on Vashon and found no #herdimmunity for ANY vaccine preventable disease in 2012.

There are 2 grocery stores, where everyone shops.

The schools share facilities, have student mentor exchanges, etc.

There are regular student trips to the 1 senior center.

Did I mention it’s an island?

It's dry tinder.
