Here is a picture of our house for the last couple of days; since Saturday mid-day to be precise.
We discovered after HP5, that we needed more than 1 book...mom and dad had to wait too long for their turn! With HP6 and now with HP7, we pre-ordered 2 books from Amazon and then sat by the door all day waiting. I was in the backyard, petting my flowers, when the mail came on Saturday. This is what I found when I came inside.
Here is what happened to the rest of the mail that day:
What fun! There is nothing like opening a new book that you KNOW is going to be fantastic. The girls have been reading non-stop since Saturday, with only occasional breaks. The big one is taking less breaks, so I think she will probably finish it today. I will be standing over her shoulder ready to grab it the minute she finishes! In fact, yesterday I told my little one to go read when I saw her taking a break...."hurry up, finish that book!" Now, if I can just keep them from telling me how it ends before I get my hands on it!
