McCain’s VP Pick

August 29, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I just watched the news conference announcing Senator McCain’s pick for VP and I gotta say, I’m excited! So far, this presidential contest has held very little excitement or interest for me as I have huge and deep reservations about Obama and McCain, respectively, but I’m starting to feel a bit more hopeful. His choice […]

Early-morning breakfast with my son

August 28, 2008 Rhonda Schrock breakfastmocha

Oh, yes – the fun thing this morning was that I finally gave in (because, really, I wanted to) the 18 year old’s begging to go for breakfast again. We hadn’t done that in quite awhile, so at 6:23 A.M., there we were, heading for our old favorite – the Main Street Coffee House in […]

Adjustments

August 28, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Good morning. This is a season of adjustments here in the wigwam. The middle two braves started school a week and two days ago, but the fourth grader missed 2-1/2 days in the first week. He is still sniffling like crazy and running through “Pluffs (his term for Puffs Plus, his favorite tissue)” like house […]

Just once, I’d like to fiddle while Rome is burning

August 25, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 08/25/08 Goshen News column

They came back this week, those big, yellow buses, to the dismay of school children countywide. Many mothers greeted them with sighs and tears. For some, they were tears of nostalgia as they watched backpacks powered by little legs ascending those tall steps and being whisked away. For others, they were tears of joy accompanied […]

This one is from Aunt Bertie: “Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light.” I’ve just been given fresh purpose and meaning! There’s a reason my chromosomes are haywire, cross-wired, and occasionally misfire. Woo-hoo!

Cheers and applause, please, for some motherly courage

August 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Oh, yes… Here’s where I accept kudos, gasps, and exclamations about my bravery. After picking up the freshman from his driver’s ed class last night, I did either a very brave or a very foolish thing and I let him drive with me for the first time. Oh. My. Word. You forget, when you’ve been […]

Oh, no! A sickie already!

August 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

You just will not believe this. Yesterday at noon I got a phone call from the school nurse. Brave #3 had been down at her office twice, complaining of sore throat. No fever, but a very sore throat. SOOOO, on the second (yes! second!) day of school, there I was, dropping everything, grabbing the baby, […]

Another “Lee Day”

August 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock foodLee Day

Our good friend, Lee, was back on Tuesday, the boys’ first day of school. She did what she always does, bakes and cooks up a storm, mixing everything up by hand, and left with baked goods all over, dinner on the stove, and casseroles in the freezer. This time, she made brownies galore (they love […]
