“I’m a what?” gasped Harry.
“A wizard, o’ course,” said Hagrid, sitting back down on the sofa, which groaned and sank even lower, “an’ a thumpin’ good ‘un, I’d, say, once yeh’ve been trained up a bit. With a mum an’ dad like yours, what else would yeh be?” (4.63-64)
This geek parent is dropping her gamer-child off at Girl Scout Camp tomorrow for a week. It is a Harry Potter themed week called Muggle No More.
This is the longest she will have ever been away from home and is starting to get a bit nervous. I want to put some quotes from the Harry Potter books in her bags. I am going to separate her outfits by day and would like to slip the quotes into each bag.
I will still be writing cards/camp emails so she has something delivered but I thought having something handwritten in her bag each morning would be sweet.
The first quote that I have is by Albus Dumbledore,
“There are all kinds of courage,” said Dumbledore, smiling. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. I therefore award ten points to Mr. Neville Longbottom.”
I think that quote is a great reminder to be the great kid that she is. Kind to others. Sweet. Courageous.
I am going to miss my little gamer girl this week. I have been having so much fun introducing her to DDO. Sad that I will not have her to play with this week. I will miss her in game tells while I am in a raid.
Any help from my fellow geeks out there?
