I is for.....I (as in this is me!)

I is for I as in me! I have gained a bunch of new followers---WELCOME!!!--- and I just wanted to take the time to re-introduce myself to you all...

This is Jacob and I (January 2011)

My name is Rachel. I am a 31 year old wife to one amazing, crazy funny man named Bill. I am mom to 2 adorable children---Rebecca is 4 (going on 30) and Jacob is 18 months old. I also have 2 angel babies in Heaven--- a child I miscarried in September 2005 and our son Travis Omar who was born at 20 weeks silently into Heaven  on Sept 21, 2008. Each of these children has has a profound impact on who I am and what I stand for.

I am also a former teacher. I have taught K-2 grades in a brick and mortar school, 3 years of homeschooling tutoring, and am currently a program assistant for an extended care program at one of the local schools. We recently moved to a small town in Ohio, after living in Columbus since we got married in 2005. I couldn't raise my kids in an area where we had 7-8 year old kids fist fighting in our front yard and their parents egging them on. Not happening. So we live in small town Ohio and I have to say we LOVE it.

I enjoy many things---reading, blogging, reading other people's blogs, looking for and scoring deals, spending time with family and friends, and the Cleveland Indians, to name a few. I also enjoy the challenge of living better each day and trying to improve myself each day. It is definitely a challenge and I don't always do well with it, but I do try to stay true to me each day and that is important.

If you have stuck with this post this far, I just want you as a reader to know, that I enjoy writing this blog. I love reading your comments to my blogs and am trying to get better at responding in a timely manner. I hope you enjoy what I write and I hope that you have an amazing week!
