First Line Fridays - Week Thirteen


First of all, I want to let you know that Ezra ended up having a strain of flu last week. (If you didn't see my FLF last week, he had a fever and went to the ER.) But he got over it super fast and is doing great! He even picked out our First Line this week!

I grew up reading The Chronicles of Narnia and they will always have a very special place in my heart. I will never forget the first time I ever heard about these books. We were at a doctor's office (I was super young and have no idea why) and a father was reading The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe to his daughter in the waiting room and invited my brother and I to listen to the story as well. My mom decided we were ready for them and the rest is history. 

My First Line:


The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia, #1)

"This is a story about something that happened long ago when your grandfather was a child."
