I’ll wear your wingtips, you wear my flip flops

June 29, 2009 Rhonda Schrock 06/29/09 Goshen News column

Note: This column appears in the 06/29/09 edition of the Goshen News. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. They’re always jumping, ever grazing, and seldom sleeping.

“Look, Mom, no weeds!”

June 29, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

June 25, 2009 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

…they are pulling other stunts today, one of which included a garden hose. When a wet, grassy boy looking rather upset appeared in my office, I knew something was afoot. Do not even ask further.
