Dad Days of Summer: While Momania’s Theresa Walsh Giarrusso takes a vacation, local dad and sportswriter Andy Johnston will be filling in. You can e-mail him firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you or your kids are Harry Potter fans, you have a reason to be nostalgic this weekend.
Many of you and your children have watched the gifted young wizard grow up in the decade since the first Potter flick came out.
You might have bonded with your kids over the books or waited for midnight showings of the movies. Did Potter work his magic and get your kids to finally start reading?
Ty’s too young to have been a part of the Potter frenzy and I have never had interest in it, but Lori has read every book and seen every movie. She’s even going back to read the second part of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” to prepare for this last movie.
For some kids – and parents, including Lori – it’s the end of an era.
If you need any proof of how long the Potter flicks have been in many of your lives, check out this AccessAtlanta slideshow for a trip down memory lane.
AccessAtlanta offers one review of the movie, but as you see it, we would love to hear your thoughts about how it was handled. Remember, no spoilers, please.
Is the release of the last Potter movie bittersweet for you and your kids?
Are you or your kids awaiting the October launch of Pottermore, a new site by author J.K Rowling?
