A Package from Astrid

I got the most amazing Care of Magical Creatures package from Astrid yesterday! My girls were present, so the Cotton Candy Bubble gum and the Blood Pops did not last too long. The piece that amazed me most? The Student Planner! I had been at a meeting with a new principal and was wishing that I had a calendar to write down upcoming events as we discussed them. That same day I get the package with the exact thing that I needed! I put that to use today as I scheduled the first fundraiser of the year for my kid's school.

I also received the much, coveted by me, Gurumi Family kit from Knit Picks, a beautiful journal (can never have too many of those!), a harmony circular size 3, beautiful stitch markers, a cute little bag to put all the little essentials in, and an HP Snitch cloth in Huffle colors. Oh! And I can't forget the delicious tasting Twilight Sweethearts candies! I'm popping the last of those in my mouth as I type :) Thank you, Astrid, for a great summer care package!

HSKS 9 - Quidditch Throughout the World

Hello, Campers!!

I hope that you've all enjoyed Summer Camp this year. I know things have gotten busy for some, and I know that I did not anticipate a change in schedule on my part, but over all I hope that you've all had a good time. This was our first HSKS Summer Camp and a lot of good things have come out of it that we'll continue on into HSKS 9. That leaves me with my main announcement here :)


Sign Ups
September 14th - September 18th

Swap Duration
September 21st - November 21st

Quidditch Teams
The teams are still yet to be decided. You will be able to choose a team that you'd like to join. Kits will be themed after the teams. There will be no House colors or identities. More than likely we'll go back to House colors during the first term of '10.

Looking for Team Captains
There will be four captains chosen. Please be watching the Rav board for application information.

Be watching the Rav board for more announcements!!
