Happy New Year’s Eve

December 31, 2008 Rhonda Schrock footballNew Year'sparty

As the tribe was out of town over Christmas, we are planning our annual holiday hoo-ha (of which there is plenty) tonight. The tradition is that we have a slumber party with two movies. This year, the show will include Prince Caspian and Dark Knight. Can you tell it’s all men around here? No Hillary […]


Quote of the Day

December 31, 2008 Rhonda Schrock quote

“How ’bout we play the game where I say, ‘Jump,’ and you say, ‘How high?’” – Jamison to Ricky, his big brother’s friend to whom he dishes endless mounds of hash and aggravation. This was after a suggestion from The Squaw that Ricky come over later this week to play a game with us. It […]


Fourteen hours with Dale, Jr. and the pit crew

December 29, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 12/29/08 Goshen News column

Note: This column appears in the 12/29/08 edition of The Goshen News. I have the privilege this week of writing the column from the little house on the prairie. Well, it’s actually my parents’ log home on the Kansas plains, but this used to be a prairie. In fact, there was a buffalo wallow or […]


The tribe is back on the reservation

December 29, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Christmassickietrip

And glad to be back! We rolled into town last night with one sickie throwing up throughout the trip and another one feeling green around the gills. The sickie should get the “Trooper of the Year” award for being the best sport that ever traveled with a bucket. No complaining, no fussing, just endurance. He […]

Merry Christmas from the Restless Natives, one and all

December 22, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Merry Christmas

The Restless Natives wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May you find a moment to kneel at the manger and give thanks for the most precious gift ever given – the Christ child, who came for the redemption of mankind. The blog will go uncharacteristically silent as the Squaw and tribe will be visiting […]


The Gift of the Child

December 22, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 12/22/08 Goshen News column

Note: This column appears in the 12/22/08 edition of The Goshen News. It’s a law of nature that the greater the darkness is, the more you need a light. Each day, it seems, brings more grim news of job losses and economic instability. Wars and rumors of wars continue to rock the planet. The world […]


Quote of the Day

December 20, 2008 Rhonda Schrock arrowsshootingwrestling

“I think you just brokered a cease fire.” – Me to The Chief (see story below) For some reason, the wooden cross bow came out last night, the one with large, plastic, rubber-tipped arrows. They’ve been known to shoot other things from it instead of the arrows, like pencils, for instance. I rounded the corner […]


Snowy Glee

December 19, 2008 Rhonda Schrock ChristmasSnow Day

Today was supposed to be the last day of school before the official Christmas holidays began. There were parties planned and treats to be hauled in. In fact, the fourth grader and I labored in the kitchen last night, cutting out and baking 27 jingle bells and gingerbread men while keeping a vigilant eye out […]


It doesn’t take a CSI

December 17, 2008 Rhonda Schrock little sinners

No, sir. It doesn’t take a CSI to figure out something’s afoot when a two year old closes a door and goes to strict radio silence. Especially not when you know an older sibling has candy lying around in his room. Hard candy, I might add. The kind that could effectively choke a toddler and […]
