I marveled, twice, about the fact that the sun sets later in Indiana than it does in Rhode Island (i.e. because it’s on the western part of the Eastern Time Zone). Therefore, after Ruth, Christi, and I parted from Jen, Cathy, and Sarah, I detoured to the banks of Lake Winona to take this photograph. (I believe I took it around 9:50 p.m.!)
We kind of lost track of time at dinner because the six of us were having such a good time. However, as I noticed the following night when Ruth and I were working on our NCTE Presentation, it’s easy to lose track of time in Indiana since the sun sets so late (Hence the reason we ate dinner at around 10 p.m. on Wednesday night).

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
