Harry, Ron, Hermoine... I'm Glad to See You Back!

I promise to get off the celebrity and movie kick immediately following this post. But I have to tell you, I'm a Harry Potter fan. A big Harry Potter fan. I adore the books; I love the movies. And while I understand that some people prefer not to read the books or share them with their children, I consider them pure fantasy... a delightful escape into a magical world of invisibility cloaks and flying hippogriffs, house elves and dear friends who stick by you no matter what.

Last year, many of us on the scrapblog site created digital scrapbooks featuring our favorite books. One of the two I created featured the Harry Potter series. To make my scrapblog a little more entertaining, I embedded a video clip of interviews conducted during the filming of the newest movie, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."

The movie has already premiered in London and will hit U.S. theatres on the 15th. So, if you're looking for me next week, you'll find me sitting in a darkened theatre eagerly awaiting the return of Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I've missed those kids!

You can view the scrapblog below or (for a larger view) click on the "scrapblog" button at the bottom, click "full screen," then hit the arrow button to play the video.

After the first book, it was just too much for me. Same with the movies. I am one of those moms who don't let their children read it only because my daughter has a difficult time staying grounded in reality and I don't need to give her one more avenue to leave. If she wants to read them in high school she is more than welcome to do that then.

I can just see you hunkered down in the cool theater eyes transfixed on the screen. Have a good time.

Eew! Did I just say one who DON'T? Well you know what I mean. Wish there was an edit button without deleting the entire post. :-)

Have a great time. I am so far behind everyone else but one day I will have read them all and enjoy the magic that is Potter. Be a kid, have a great time!
