Thanks for the kind words, everyone :) I'm working on getting back into the swing of things ... I see that I didn't miss too much! Blogging is slow!
I also see, now, just how much time I was spending on the computer pre-trip, and that will have to change, which means my own blogging may be slow.
I have finished HP5, and I am pleased. It's more character development than action, though there is good action at the end. Rowling is very good at writing characters who are so mean and evil and nasty that you just want to reach out and strangle someone! We are reading it to the kids now. I didn't think it was any scarier than book two, although I am sure that a good bit of the teen angst and hormonal issues will be over their heads.
My favorite character in this book was Ginny Weasley. What a treasure she has turned out to be!
Now I'm working on lesson plans for our Hogwarts Summer Correspondence School. There is so much we could do that I'm having a great deal of trouble narrowing it down! This is going to be so much fun!Posted by Steph at June 25, 2003 12:35 AM
