The kids have been enjoying trickster stories lately. Rowan's teacher read a different version of Brer Rabbit & the tar baby. He called it Fox, Rabbit, and the Gummy man. He had a blast acting it out at dinner time. I've been bringing home stories about the spider trickster, Anansi, from the library. Therin was reading Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock this morning in the van on the way to school. Midway through the story Brenna stopped him and said, "Therin you need to say Uh-nahn-SEE not uh-NANCY, Uh-naaahhhnnn-SEEEE."
