September 1st has come and gone, so it’s time to head back to Hogwarts for the start of a new term.

Can you believe it’s been over 20 years since the Harry Potter books were released? Are we really that old? Harry Potter seems to have been such a defining part of our adolescence.

Now here we are more than 20 years later introducing our children to the joys of J. k. Rowling’s masterpiece. Watching our children discover the magical world of Harry Potter is such a fun experience. Though, it gets you wondering what house they would be sorted into.

As for us, Jaclyn is solidly and whole-heartedly a Gryffindor. Rachael, on the other hand, is probably a Ravenclaw. What house would you belong to?

Oh, and we are also sharing some amazing Kindle book deals on Amazon. Because, you can never have too many books!
