Potter mania pics!

Kirsten & family & students & me!

Hastings had free "butterbeer"!

Registering for prizes...hooray!

...which we didn't win. Boo!

So many good-looking Madison kids were there!

One student gave me Botts' two of the WORST flavors.
(Pickle and dirt. And yes, I ate them.)

Sue & Trisha were there!

Oh, and former students, too! Tiffany is now a grown woman with
her own business at !

And in keeping with the British nature of the event,
I wore my "tea teeth" for the occasion! :-)

(Seriously. I need to give up coffee. Or go for whitening. Or both.)

And yes, I know these pics could have been cropped and retouched and had the Red Eye removed...but it's nearly 1:00 in the morning and I was at work at 7:35 a.m. (last day of Summer School!) and I'm EXHAUSTED and going to bed with my new book.

UPDATE: I got to page 4 before I fell asleep. :-)

May Bee and Misha (and their 6:00 a.m. cries for breakfast) and the Fed Ex man (and his 7:57 phone call) have ensured that there's no rest for the weary...but that's okay because the trip to Hastings last night not only put the Harry Potter book on my nightstand, but the new White Stripes CD in my laptop! Summer school is over, and LIFE IS GOOD!

Actually the 'Beer' was a buck a cup! But it was pretty good, except the aftertaste a few hours later :-) oh, well...we are HP fans!

How cool! we didn't have butterbeer, but I did get to pay for a mango orange smoothie. :) Enjoy the book--it's fantastic!
