The Title is Lost

Written By: Jodi on March 28, 2008 3 Comments

We no longer hold the title of “Last Christian Homeschooling Family With Children Over the Age of Six Who Have Not Read or Seen The Chronicles of Narnia.” That’s LCHFWCOASWHNRSTCON, for short. Please, hold your applause and do not faint. It is true.

We have owned the movie probably since it first came out on DVD and never watched it. I also have the entire set of Chronicles of Narnia and it had not been cracked open. Well, we watched the movie tonight (even the 7 year old who claimed he did not want to watch it, but couldn’t stay away!) and said 7 year old has now requested that I read him part of the book, starting with the Magician’s Nephew, every day. Oh, yes he did!

Part of my hesitation was that I thought it might be too deep or that the boys (or me) wouldn’t like it, but we were all glued to it. That was a fast 2 hours! Tomorrow, I think my older son will be watching EVERY bonus feature on the DVD. I think the boys are officially hooked. Whew! :-)

So, I can now stop cringing in fear whenever the topic of Narnia comes up lest my total ignorance be revealed to the world. And yes, I did cry. A couple of times.

I must go now. He who wants to be read to is insisting we start NOW because he just can’t wait until tomorrow.

    Cool. we still haven’t watched it. Though we did go see the play that went on in Ames. It was interesting. I don’t think my kids could handle the “witch”. They get freaked out easily:)

    Thanks for the visit! We didn’t see this movie until way after it was released on dvd…and we loved it! We’re reading the chronicles right now too! Don’t you just love it when the kids get so excited!! Fun!!

    We didn’t see the movie until we checked it out from the library. I have two boys – 3 and 2 – they both loved it! They have wooden play swords and shields that they didn’t really understand how to use until watching the movie! So, they spent a couple weeks acting out various scenes. I love it!
