Come join Dumbledore's Army!

My two 13 year olds are the biggest fans of Harry Potter that I know. Like most (if not all) Potterheads, they know all the spells and all the details of the magical world created by JK Rowling. Their interest in all things Harry Potter deepened even further after Hubby and I brought them on a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. I still remember how excited they were when they had their first taste of Butter Beer! Click HERE for my trip report if you had missed it before.

One day it dawned upon them that since many of their friends are huge Potterheads too, they should belong to a Harry Potter Club. Since there wasn't one in school, they decided to create one. I was so amused when they excitedly announced at the end of the last school year that they had received the Principal's approval. They are the founders of the new Harry Potter Club! The meetings will start in the 2016-17 school year. Woohoo!

Fast forward to today. The first meeting of the newly formed club is happening as I am writing this. The kids had made and distributed posters of their club but I offered to make them a couple more.

Here is a phone photo of the posters that was taken in the wee hours of the morning. What do you think? Too cute for middle schoolers? The twins liked them and brought them to school the other week.

I cannot wait for them to come home and tell me all about their first Dumbledore Army meeting.

  1. So cute Jin! I love Harry Potter also and I'm 62! Although not enough to start a club or learn all of the incantations. I just enjoy reading the books and watching the movies. You are such a joy. Thanks for sharing your creations and family updates.
