J.K. Rowling revealed that James Sirius Potter was off to Hogwarts…
I’m in Edinburgh, so could somebody at King’s Cross wish James S Potter good luck for me? He’s starting at Hogwarts today. #BackToHogwarts — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015

Jo’s request was quickly followed by a worry.
Now worried that he’ll be irritated by the number of people saying hi. https://t.co/6keaEOsKS0 — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015
Plus, Jo revealed some exciting news about a certain Teddy Lupin.
Have just heard that James S Potter has been Sorted (to nobody’s surprise) into Gryffindor. Teddy Lupin (Head Boy, Hufflepuff) disappointed.

Meanwhile, in the Muggle world, there were sports matches to watch…
Scotland 16 France 12. Why aren’t I in Paris? (A question I ask myself often, even when there’s no rugby happening). #AsOne — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 5, 2015
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No. Why do I even watch this game?
