Our Favorite Things - #1

Several months ago we bought the Radio Theatre production of The Chronicles of Narnia on cd to listen to in the car (we "read" a lot of books this way as we spend a lot of time in the car going to various activities). We've enjoyed all of the stories immensely, but I was moved to post about it after listening to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader on our way to the library yesterday. Without ruining the story for those who don't know it, there was a certain part of the story that had us all absolutely riveted! The kids have been dying to go somewhere today just so we can listen to it some more.
We don't listen to them only in the car - we have found that listening to them at night with the lights turned down (or by candlelight) makes the stories even more magical. With a cup of something warm to drink in your hands, life doesn't get much better!

The bedtime routine, by candlelight and with a warm drink, sounds wonderful. I so look forward to having moments like this with our little guy - his dad is an excellent storyteller (with voices for each character).
