We took the kids to the Woodland Park Zoo just before school started, and we came to this exhibit with a green snake in it. It was just laying there, not moving, until the minute all three kids were clustered around looking at it, and then it suddenly rose up to be face to face with them
Emily said, "Hey, this is just like in Harry Potter!" and the boys suddenly started speaking Parsaltongue (their own little version of it, anyway). And then people started pushing and shoving up to the glass to see the snake, when suddenly the glass disappeared and they all fell in! Okay okay, so the glass didn't disappear and no one fell in, but people DID start pushing and shoving to get a look at the snake as it truly appeared to be interacting with the kids.
We all need little Harry Potter moments in our life, right? (Right, Kaci?? XOXO)
