My kit has landed!

Sorry I'm very late in posting this! I've been really busy, and tired (taking care of 5 kids age 6 months to 3.5 years, and being 31 weeks pregnant will do that to ya!) lol! Anyways, I signed up for Herbology...i got linen yarn, and a pattern for a bag to use with it, some stitch markers that I wanted, a re-useable shopping bag, and some Bertie Bott's every flavor beans...there may have been something else, but I have no brain and can't remember! lol! The jelly beans are long gone thanks to my kids, and the bag is in use, but here's a pic of the yarn, pattern, and stitch markers...

What is it about children and trains?

Just an observation, but I just find it amazing the fascination that muggle, and magical children alike have with Trains. There's something magical and fascinating about how different they are, how they operate, and the places that they'll take you! So do to this fascination, needless to say, we had a wonderful time today, and the kids really enjoyed seeing Thomas, riding the train, and just seeing things through childrens eyes.

The weather!

I am loving being at camp so much! The weather is so much nicer than back home where I live in the muggle world! I have been keeping really busy with knitting and crocheting projects, and of course, trying to find those pesky eggs! I haven't had any luck though! I searched for almost 2 hours to no avail! Luckily many of my Ashwinder cabin mates have had much better luck than I have, so we are still doing fairly well! Well, sorry for the quick update from me this week, but I have more knitting to do, and i need to tidy up my cabin area!

Facing my Boggart

My Boggart takes on the form of a scary, hairy, giant spider. The very thought makes my skin crawl, and gives me goosebumps. I actually think they're neat to watch from afar, but the thought of them on my skin, or cobwebs on my skin for that matter just creeps me out. So, as this boggart creeps closer in the form of a spider, I conjure up some courage, wand at the ready, clearly say "Riddikulus!" and with a flick of my wand my spider turns into, Oswald...the friendly, funny Octopus from Nickelodeon! lol!

Game 2

Part One:
In the second volume of the HP books by JK Rowling, The (#1)Chrome Cab Festers, we continue to learn the incredible adventures of Hogwarts student (#2) Parry He Trot and his friends (#3) Oral Weensy and (#4) Angering Her More. Belonging to the house of (#5) Dry Off Grin, they attend Defense Against the (#6) Ark Darts taught by Wizarding celebrity (#7) Oracle Dorky Light, a none-too-bright fellow who cannot even handle pixies!
In The (#8) Chrome Cab Festers, we also meet Dobby a (#9)See Flu Oh for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10) Parry He Trot to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) My Molten Grain, shows (#12) Parry He Trot and (#13) Oral Weensy an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!
Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Parry He Trot finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Mold Voter) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Crux Rho) and saves the sister of (#17) Oral Weensy, (#18) Gayly Nine Sew!!!
Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Oracle Dorky Light unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Snob In A Froze Parka…

Part Two:
17-4, 14-1, 9-6, 3-3
18-2, 3-3
19-4, 11-2, 9-3, 8-5, 15-9
7-1, 11-2
15-9, 11-2
15-9, 14-1, 9-6
13-8, 18-2, 8-5, 16-3, 6-5, 16-3, 5-3!

Getting ready for camp

I'm really excited to be going to camp...only problem is, i can't pack, or get dressed because someone has put some sort of Protego Totalum charm on my room, and I can't get in to get my things! It is quite bothersome, but I suppose that I will just have to head to camp with the shirt on my back, rely on magic, and make the best of it! :D At least there'll be swimming and campfires, right?

This week at hogwarts....

I'm so excited! I've had such a busy week, but I got one of the best ideas...we are going to be starting a magically dance company! Not only will we be dancing, we will be using magic, and brooms to coordinate, and synchronize our movements, and to just add another whole dimension to dance! It should be really great. Having danced for 15 years I also get to be a student teacher! It is going to be so fun, and exciting! More to come later once we decide on a theme for our first production!
