Today, is Wednesday which means early release from school for the big boys, which means we have time to do something. Jack has been talking about going to the Harry Potter Exhibition for weeks it is at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, so today was the day! I didn’t know what to expect but with the price to get in I hoped it would be good. It was well done, we all really enjoyed it. Jack was sorted into the Gryffindor house and we got to see many real props from the movie like a life-sized Hogwarts Express train, go inside Hagrid’s house, help Professor Sprout by pulling up mandrakes (they were loud)and see the life sized head of one of the dragons. Of course it all ended in a gift shop where they sold movie prop quality wands for $45 or marauder's map for $44. After narrowly escaping the gift shop we played till closing in the science center!
Today Dad and Mom were trying to get projects around the house done so instead of doing something extreme today we wrote Santa letters and emailed them. It was really fun because Santa wrote back immediately and each of the boys got a letter to print out.
Day 10, Friday
Today Dad, Mom and Scarlett visited Asher’s class. In the morning Asher and Mom made Christmas mix to take to Asher’s class. We brought a Christmas story called Auntie Claus and Dad read to the class. Asher was so pleased to have his dad read to everyone and to share the Christmas mix at snack time. Love how excited he gets when we come to school!
Later on Friday night we had the church Christmas party. It was wonderful!
