Blast from the Past: Harry Potter

Jordan is a huge Harry Potter fan.  I credit J K Rowling with developing Jordan's love for reading.  Therefore, we always celebrate the premiere of the latest movie and have a standing date to see it the first weekend.

Today, we're only going to go back to 2001 to the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's StoneLook how young Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint appear in this first movie.  Aren't they adorable?

These young actors have entertained us for 10 years with their adventures at Hogwarts, their battles against he who shall not be named, and their growing pains.  It was bittersweet last weekend when we viewed the last film of this magical series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.  
These brilliant actors have grown from young children into responsible adults.  I feel as though they are a part of our family.  Whatever the future brings for them, I am confident they will be successful.  

Are you a Harry Potter Fan?  I'd love to hear your stories. 


  1. i agree with you LA
    and i hope they remain
    as wholesome as they've
    appeared to us over the past 10 years!

  2. I think it we should all thank J K Rowling for bringing adults and children together to read and watch the adventures of the Hogwarts folks! As a library worker I know what these books have done to get kids to read. The actors have been tremendous and it has been lovely to watch the young ones grow up in their roles. The last film was a good ending.Loved all of them. all the best Angela

  3. My daughter got the first book when she was in the 5th grade and she is now almost 27. She took a Harry Potter class in college, has read them all...sees the movies at midnight and has simply grown up with all things Potter. I've also read, watched and enjoyed the fantasy world and I think we are all very sad that this is over.

  4. Doesn't that make you feel "old" watching them grow up like
