They grow up so fast! It seems like only yesterday that Harry Potter was on Platform 9 3/4 to hop on the Hogwarts Express, and now his son, James Sirius Potter, is starting his first day of school at the wizarding academy. “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to wish the fictional character good luck:

James was born in 2004 and is the first-born child of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. But just because James is starting school, doesn’t mean that Harry and Ginny have an empty nest. Their two younger children, Albus Severus and Lily Luna, still have a couple of years to go before they attend Hogwarts.

Fans who watched the “Harry Potter” movies know that the final installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” showed James boarding the Hogwarts express with his younger brother Albus in 2017. The Potters were at the platform at King’s Cross Station to see James off for his third year and Albus off for his first year at the school of witchcraft.

Will the Sorting Hat place him into Gryffindor just like his mom and dad? Rowling revealed late Tuesday afternoon that James was placed in House Gryffindor, much to the disappointment of his friend Teddy Lupin, a headboy in Hufflepuff.
