Narnia!

Field trip day!  Took my girls to the campus of Wheaton College.  There's a small museum there at the Wade Center that houses some pretty cool artifacts.  Well, if you're a reader you'll find them cool. 

First the wardrobe that inspired CS Lewis to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, then misc. artifacts about CS Lewis, next up his writing desk.  They also have JRR Tolkiens writing desk but I couldn't find a picture without people in it.

My girls had a great time visiting here.  They pointed out the coffee ring stains on both desks!  Or are they tea stains?  Probably sat sipping, thinking, writing.....

Next field trip - The Billy Graham Center!  


You can see the furs inside and reach in.... can you touch snow?

The sticker on the inside of the wardrobe.


Aslan!
