(It was a) Happy Memorial Day!

May 28, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I hope your holiday was as fun as ours was. Talk about relaxing! This is how it started out… The day before I said to The Chief, “It’s too bad Krispy Kreme isn’t closer, because I would run and get some to bring home and surprise the boys.” He said, “Well, why don’t you?” That […]


Oh, the Fun (and Stress) of Summer!

May 26, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 05/26/08 Goshen News article

There is excitement and joy in the Schrock household this week. The last day of school a mere two days away, and we are more than ready. It seems like just a few weeks ago that the first buses came rolling by to be greeted with fervent shouts of, “Go on past, prison bus. Go […]


Bless my hubby

May 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This morning I just have to say, “God bless that husband of mine.” I’ve not really mentioned it, but I’m pretty stressed out with getting all the arrangements for this open house in place. I don’t enjoy organizing large events. I tend to worry and I’m trying very, very hard not to do that this […]


Pray Without Ceasing

May 19, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 05/19/08 Goshen News article

As you know by now, our household consists of a mother, a father, and four sons ranging in ages from 23 months to 18-1/2 years. For three years, we have had a kiddo at the elementary, middle, and high schools with Gabey filling his little spot in the nursery. Grant’s experience growing up was entirely […]

Kieran, the third grader, and his friends play all kinds of things at recess…chasing, capturing, cops-and-robbers types of games, and multiple variations on those themes. In fact, early one morning before he left for school, he got a phone call from his best buddy, “Bring the handcuffs. We need ’em to get Alejandro at recess.” […]


What Do You Think?

May 14, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Quote from Elizabeth Elliott (as near as I can remember it): “Do not think that you could be holier under any other circumstances, because if you could, God would surely put you there.” Hmm. Chewing on that one.


Please, Send Troops! Send Money!

May 12, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 05/12/08 Goshen News article

Some events have transpired this week that have highlighted an area in our family life that needs attention. A certain analyst (that would be me) has been picking up chatter that a certain criminal element (one of the boys) has been conducting clandestine operations against a neighboring tribe (his younger brother). His weapon of choice […]


Would I leave fingerprints if I strangled a kid?

May 9, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I tell you what. The Schrock boys should be running scared…very scared. After what they pulled this morning, they are lucky to be alive. I was doing my usual Friday morning thing, sitting up at the coffee shop. I was there to write, but the senior had stopped in after early-morning prayer breakfast to beg […]


Spring Rapture and – Weapons Checks?

May 7, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It’s so beautiful in Northern Indiana today. Things are green, the flowers are vibrant, and the sun is out. This evening I took the three youngest with me while I stopped at the library to exercise my rights as a citizen and cast my vote. Then we went to the bike path at the school […]


There’s No Vaccine For This Virus

May 5, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 05/05/08 Goshen News article

The Schrock household has been afflicted this spring with a virulent case of a malady known as “senioritis.” Despite his mother’s begging to “please see what you can do about flunking because I really like you right now,” the senior has managed to do just the opposite. On May 30, 2008, Jordan will be walking […]
