Just Who is This a Vacation For?

December 31, 2007 Rhonda Schrock 12/31/07 Goshen News article

We are now a week into Christmas break, and all across America mothers are exclaiming, “Just who is this a vacation for?” As always, the schedule goes out the window when the kids are home, and while it is a welcome break, there are certain – um, challenges that come with it. In our household, […]

Tweaking the title

December 28, 2007 Rhonda Schrock There's always something...

As you will notice, I’ve changed the title of the blog. I’m still not quite sure if I’m set on this one, but for now I’ll go with it. It’s snowing beautifully right now and the house is relatively quiet, so Christmas wonders never cease! I’m still trying to wrap up Monday’s article, struggling with […]

I think you can leave comments much easier now

December 27, 2007 Rhonda Schrock Go ahead - speak your mind

Good evening: I actually had a bit of free time tonight, so I tinkered with a few things and I think I have fixed it so it is much easier to leave comments now. From what I hear from Mom and just from various ones of you, there are quite a few of you reading […]

2007 Christmas Letter

December 26, 2007 Rhonda Schrock In case you didn't get one

December 19, 2007 Dear family and friends, Merry Christmas! It’s been a long time since the Schrocks have done a Christmas update. We could plead busyness, but aren’t you sick of hearing that? I won’t go there. Wow, this was a year of changes for us, that’s for sure. Grant and I both hit the […]

“Sweet Little Jesus Boy”

December 24, 2007 Rhonda Schrock 12/24/07 Goshen News article

This column first appeared in the 12/24/07 edition of The Goshen News. This is the story of a baby named Gabey. I share it with you now because it all began in the midst of the lights and the carols and the high hope of a Christmas two years ago. The characters in this story […]

“And the Trophy Goes To…”

December 18, 2007 Rhonda Schrock 12/17/07 Goshen News article

There’s no doubt about it – Christmas is our favorite time of year. It begins when Grant gets out his huge library of holiday tunes. Such a Christmas buff is he that when the decorations start appearing in the stores, he rejoices. He revels. He wallows. He issues regular reports. “Christmas stuff at Target, aisle […]

Uh-Oh!

December 11, 2007 Rhonda Schrock THIS WASN'T S'POSED TO RUN THIS WEEK

This week’s article is kind of an “oops.” Thanks to the vagaries of my email, they did not receive the one I had ready to go for today, which is suited to the season, but thank God they had some backups that I had sent longer ago, so they just picked one and this is […]

Fear, Filas, and Cottage Cheese

December 11, 2007 Rhonda Schrock 12/10/07 Goshen News article

One of the favorite sports at the Schrock household is running. My husband started the whole shebang when as a teenager he discovered euphoria on the running trail, otherwise known as “runner’s high.” It’s through running that he has met some of his best friends. Countless Saturdays have been spent out on the road with […]

Family Fun, Frivolity, and – Felons?

December 3, 2007 Rhonda Schrock 12/03/07 Goshen News column

We were all a bit sleep deprived this week after our big Thanksgiving hoo-ha. With two of Grant’s siblings and their families here from Georgia, we celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Happy New Year’s in one exhausting, three-day marathon. That’s either efficiency or lunacy. Personally, our holiday festivities began in a rather inauspicious manner. If you […]
