Today, the two eldest children and I headed to our 2nd year at Hogwarts. We departed platform 9 3/4 at 11:20 and spoke with the sorting hat, had a lesson on changing pincushions into hedgehogs, tried to battle Cornish pixies, had a lesson on changing the phases of the moon and also learned how to play quiddich and got a chance to play a game. Potterfest is so well done! Brianna, our neighbor was playing the role of Hermione and Nate, one of my classroom parents, played the role of Hagrid. One of my students was also in our class. I love living in a small town and having such and incredible bookstore with inventive owners!
The past two days I have spent some time in my new classroom space doing some directing and organizing. I'm really excited to get things...
