if you’d like some help with your homework

just mention that you’re creating a Harry Potter diorama for your book report.
As Xander says, “It’s kind of nerdy to do dioramas just for fun. But if it’s homework, it’s just smart.”
Over the cries of “I’ll mold the sword of Gryffindor!” “The sorting hat needs to look older.” “Does the pheonix have orange feathers?” It was done in record time and still looked like the work of a 3rd grader.
They’re pushing for The Lord of the Rings next month. ‘Ya think Gabe can get the trilogy read in three weeks?

    I love your posts! They help to remind me to take is easy and enjoy my little ones while they are little and still at home! It was fun to see you on a shoot, even if it was only for a min. You are as nice in person as you are on your cute blog!

    I love the group effort! And that’s no shoddy diorama. It’s Harry in action. Pretty awesome!

    Michelle —
    I’m dreaming for Christmas over here and wondering what kind of camera I should get. I have never had an SLR, so I’m hoping you can lead me to a starting place. What do you recommend?

    My email is trainermomma@gmail.com.

    Thanks! I adore your blog — it is a breath of fresh air 🙂
