Chapter 9: In the Witch's House

"And now of course you want to know what had happened to Edmund.  He had eaten his share of the dinner, but he hadn't really enjoyed it because he was thinking all the time about Turkish Delight." -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Hadan, Kalag Town, Busan:  Took a walk along the Naktong River today with the girls, stopping to throw stones, skipping them atop the frozen waves.
"Anyway, she'll be better than that awful Aslan."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

We've been cooped up lately on this Korean trip, plenty of cuddle time... as Kinu noticed.  Here she does her best snow pea impersonation.
"With the snowflakes swirling all round him he could hardly see..."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Bundling up to go outside is my favorite.  I bought some sweet mittens and gloves in Taichung and put them to good use here for the harsh Korean winter.
"Of course that set him off thinking about being a king and all the other things he would do..."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

We've been reading C.S. Lewis this week.  The girls listen and draw pictures and beg me to keep going.  They can't believe Edmund could be such a stinker.  What is Turkish Delight anyway?
"The house was really a small castle.  It seemed to be all towers; little towers with long pointed spires on them, sharp as needles."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

In the airport, Rebekah reads of Lucy's adventures... when we got to her grandparent's house, one of the first things she did was climb inside the wardrobe to see if it was true.
"As he got into the middle of it he saw that there were dozens of statues- standing here and there rather as pieces stand on a chess-board..."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Storytime has always been my favorite part of the day.  Watching my three girls sacked out on the floor, yeah...
"Make ready our sledge," ordered the Witch, "and use the harness without bells."  -The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Cold and windy, swirling snowflakes and biting air... time to get back inside, mix some coco, and begin chapter 10.  Aslan is on the move, don't you know?
