Franki and Karen - The Beginning

I couldn't resist the opportunity to post one more time for Franki's birthday when I came across this pic today. The two of us posed for this picture when we were at the Columbia Writing Project Summer Institute that I mentioned in my previous post.

This was the beginning of many years of learning and friendship.

(Yes, Franki looks like she is 12!)

I need to share one more story.  There is a bit of an age difference between Franki and me.  She often takes the opportunity to remind me!  We discovered this when we happened to be talking about my first year of teaching.  She was quick to point out that she was in first grade when I started my first year of teaching in first grade!  Yes, it makes me field old.  Especially, now that she is 50!

Happy Birthday, Franki!
