Wild About Harry!

So this is the end of the Harry Potter movie series, and we've been gearing up for the big event for the past two weeks! We had a movie marathon over the Fourth of July weekend, but we saved the first part of The Deathly Hallows for last night. We had pizza and read the last 30 or so pages of the book then watched the movie and were well-prepared for the second part today. Georgia and Ivy even dressed up - themselves and the car!

The movie was excellent and so worth the wait! But we hated to say "goodbye" to such dear friends. Thankfully, we can read the books again and again and pay Harry and company another visit sometime at Hogwarts - Platform 9 3/4, here we come!

My favorite quote from the entire series comes from Professor Dumbledore in The Chamber of Secrets:

It's our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

I know this to be true because I have seen it in the choices Georgia has made since her diagnosis. She has chosen to be positive, to fight, and to help others by sharing her story, and Trevor and I couldn't be more proud of her. She is unstoppable!
