    Default Had to Share....My son is going to see JK Rowling :)

    Im a proud mom (more proud then normal)

    My oldest son who is in grade 6 is going to Toronto to see J.K.Rowling, during her book tour, get to meet her and gets a book signed by her. Im sending the camera with him, hoping picture taking is allowed.

    He is a huge Harry Potter fan, has read all the books (presently working on the last one)..Has seen all the movies, has the collector cards and scene it games.

    To win he had to write an essay on Why he likes Harry Potter and Why he should win.

    Our School got 4 tickets ..And a student in grades 6. 7. 8 were chose from the essays.

    His was the best for the grade 6's.

    He leaves Tuesday Morning, they are going via Train (ALL paid)..Lunch also provided as well as dinner (have to still check this). After the book thing, they are going to tour around Toronto for awhile...they return late Tuesday.

    His essay is Framed

    He just brought home the paper work..now now We have to be to the train station at 530-545 AM yes thats AM..lol means getting up around 445AM YUCK YUCK YUCK.... lol

    This is the ONLY Canadian visit by JK Rowling..and only 1,000 people have been invited. Its by invite only. (HOW COOL)

    Cameras are NOT allowed (Because of Security) But the teacher who is going, has a camera pass so hopefully we can get a picture from him.

    They are provided a signed copy of the final book..we don't have to take our own. (Anyone know where you can buy book cases)?

    Our only cost is Lunch (they were wrong in the orig. letter)..But lunch isn't bad for a once in a lifetime chace to meet her.
