Movie: “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” (2005) –Georgia Henley, Tilda Swinton, Jim Broadbent and James McAvoy
Four kids travel through a wardrobe to the land of Narnia and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical lion.
I had to pick a movie that features England and London, even though only for a short time, since I have just returned from a 12-day excursion across England. I can’t wait to tell you all about it in a future blog post.
The film’s based on C.S. Lewis’s famous series. Enough said.
See this movie. Read the book.
News: “A Boy and His Dog Bring Smile to Soldier Dad”
This is such a cute idea and it really shows the sweet relationship between a boy and his dog and a fun way to lift his dad’s spirits while overseas on military tour.

Do you have cute pictures of pets from when you or your children were little? Do you think your current pet/s would let you dress them up like this?
Book: “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis
Narnia … the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy … the place where adventure begins. Lucy is the first to find the secret wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old house. At first, no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia.
But soon Edmund and then Peter and Susan discover the Magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. In blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever. Enter this enchanted world countless times in The Chronicles of Narnia.
Sure, you should definitely watch the movie as I mentioned above – but the book is even higher recommended. Unforgettable book and series.

“A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” – Proverbs 19:11 (NIV)
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” – Cesare Pavese
Song: “Scarborough Fair/Canticle” – Simon and Garfunkel
Lovely, classic rendition of this English folk song by the famous American duo. Their version was partially modified using one of their songs.
