Two is Better Than One

No, I am not married, but I have a roommate! Katherine and I have known each other since we were three years old and met at the Rhinebeck Library Story Hour. At the Rhinebeck Library Story Hour, Mrs. Briggs read us stories and taught us to dance to the tune of "Knees Up Mother Brown." We would march around and make sure that as we marched our knees went up really high! Katherine and I both attended Chancellor Livingston Elementary school. We spent many school afternoons together and whatever Katherine needed to do, I needed to do in the same moment, at the same time. When we were ten we volunteered together at the local nursing home, visiting residents just to talk and laugh with them. In our younger adolescence we went on a couple of vacations to New Jersey's coast together. Our paths have intertwined again as we both work on our Master of Arts in Teaching degrees at Binghamton University. Our Endicott apartment is a happy place!
