And the citizens are speaking…

April 30, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Yes, my friends, the votes are coming in slowly, but surely. I picked up one trackside last night as I was shouting encouragement to my son. A faithful reader came up to me saying, “Madam President! I like your platform. You have my vote,” with lots of laughter. A former babysitter of mine originally from […]

That’s My Platform, and I’m Sticking To It

April 28, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 04/28/08 Goshen News article

A couple of weeks ago I laid out my qualifications as a potential presidential candidate. While I have not exactly been inundated with votes, they have begun to trickle in, and I think I can pick up a couple more if I lean on the other two voters who share my address. Some of the […]

The Taste of Spring

April 25, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

In celebration of spring, I did something yesterday that I haven’t done in two years. I made – from scratch! – two rhubarb custard pies from the two rhubarb plants in the garden (yes, those; the ones the boys circled madly in their epic chase last summer). They were very, very well received by four […]

What I’m Reading

April 24, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I just finished John Eldredge’s newest book, “Walking With God.” Anything he writes is more than worth the time. If you’re a woman and you haven’t read “Captivating,” the book that he and his wife wrote for women, go pick it up. It is very insightful, capturing the essence of a woman and God’s heart […]

My Goofy Boys

April 22, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This morning I received a delightful email from a reader about yesterday’s column. My sons’ responses? Kieran: “We’re the ones behind all the work and we’re not getting any credit for it!” (Laughing as he says this.) Me to their father: “I give them ALL the credit for it! They get the credit for the […]

It’s a Monumental Thing

April 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 04/21/08 Goshen News article

In the life of a teenager, few things are more important than gaining independence as he or she transitions into adulthood. Perhaps the most visible symbol of that desired independence is an automobile. It marks a rite of passage into the grownup world with the accompanying grownup privileges and responsibilities. As parents, we walk through […]

Senior Night Preview

April 18, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Coming soon (hopefully), pictures from Senior Night. Tuesday night was Jord’s one and only home track meet for this season, much to my dismay. That made it Senior Night. I tried to get some pictures with our camera, but our camera isn’t great at taking pictures of anything moving, so it’s pretty much a blur. […]

A Plea for Help

April 18, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Hey, y’all. The author of the “Restless Natives” would be very grateful for your creative input. I’m still in need of a name for the column. I had someone email me a suggestion this week, which got me thinking about it again. They suggested a play on the word “rendezvous,” as in, Rhonda’s View, or […]

I Give You…LePeeps!

April 17, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This morning my post involves two elements: an introduction and a confession. I would like to introduce you to a Schrock favorite…LePeeps! Friends of ours first mentioned LePeeps to us a few years back. We now love it. What is it, you ask? Well, they only serve the best brunches this side of the Mississippi. […]

A White House, Or Not…

April 15, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I gotta tell you this… When I told Grant what my topic was, he said, “Well, the White House was white when we got there…” I cracked up, because instantly I was envisioning peanut butter and jelly on the walls (compliments of the toddler who thinks he’s an Olympic thrower right now), applesauce smears, and […]
