So I keep staring at my laptop, thinking I will have ideas... but I don't. I'm completely preoccupied with wedding stuff and have spent the last three days driving from one end of town to the other, trying to find the items we need to rent for our October wedding.
I have it in my head that, once school starts, I will not have a spare minute to spend on wedding. This is happening around August 1 - we have a reading camp and grade levels are coming in to plan for the year. This is exciting and a great idea, but I know that the more time I spend at school, the less time I spend on the wedding and the more likely I become a BRIDEZILLA!
I'm not one yet, I've been told... but it could happen at any moment.
Anyway, I thought that, as people are getting their rooms ready for school, Reader's and Writer's Workshop are great blogging topics. And the best part is...
I already blogged about it, back on August 25, 2012. So here's my Throwback Thursday Post: Must-Have Materials for Reader's and Writer's Workshop!
As soon as I saw Lindsay's Linky Party, I knew I had to link up. The problem was I have been a little braindead when I get home. It's like the hamster in there is so exhausted from running all day that he just keels over and zonks out for hours at at time. Don't ask me questions after 6:00. My answers don't make any sense.
But I definitely had to link up with Lindsay's Linky Party, and I just needed to wait until my brain worked well enough to do it

This was a nonfiction nook I had several years ago. Loved it.
