Hi. My name is Jacqui Odell. I live in Western Kansas. The town I live in is basically in the middle of nowhere. The nearest Wal-Mart is 30 miles away. Sounds bad, but you get use to it. I love living in a small town. The community is close and you always have people willing to jump in a give you help when you need it. In May 04 I got married to the most wonderful husband. He works hard so I can stay home with our 3 beautiful children. I do have an Associates Degree in General Studies. Sometime in the future I hope to go back to college and get a degree in Special Education. Right now though, I think I have the best job every and that’s just being a mommy. I love to write and I am very excited in being a part of 3 Boys and a Dog!
Considering my family is a big part of who I am, I thought I would share a little bit about them with you. My husband is an Athletic Directer and Physical Education teacher for the local school. As being a teacher and AD isn’t enough he is also the Football, Basketball, Track, and Weightlifting Coach. He is constantly on the go, but he enjoys it allot. His true passion is Football. He works very hard so I can stay home and take care of our three children.
My oldest is Bryson is 5 years old. Currently he is in Head Start. He is very excited to go to school at Daddy’s school next year. I use to tell him when he turned 5 he would go to Daddy’s school. He turned 5 in January and thought that the next day he would get to go to Daddy’s school. I had to explain to him that he couldn’t go until football started. That should tell you how much this family is into football. He loves to learn and ask ten million questions! If there is a question to be asked he will ask it. He is really getting into learning about space and plants. I think his passion is going to be science and football!
My daughter Zoey is 3 years old. She will start Head Start in August and is very excited to make friends. She is my little dancer. She’s always on the go. This past year was her first year in tumbling and I think that’s the best thing we could have done for her. She loved it.
Last but not least, we have Carly or as I often call her Carly Jo. She is 8 months and is my little ray of sunshine! She can be sick, but will still be all smiles. I remember one time we were at a local store and the cashier and two other works were having a contest who can maker her smile the most. I didn’t have to heart to tell them that all you had to do was look at her and she would smile. She is quick learner and is on the go like her big sister.
Outside of my three children we also have a dog. Sadie girl is a pit bull. I do not have a clue how old she is, because she kind of just walked into our family. She was abandoned by her previous owner. Although I think it’s sad when dogs get abandon I am happy she did, because we wouldn’t have her if it wasn’t for that. She is a very happy dog and would lick you to death.
A little bit more information about me. I love to bake and cook, although I am not the greatest at it. I do enjoy learning and trying to recopies. I HAVE to have the recipe. I am not one of those cooks that can just make their own and go as they go. Two Christmas’s ago my mother in law got me a sewing machine. I would have to say that’s probably one of my favorite gifts ever. I taught myself how to sew and I really do enjoy it. Although I don’t get to it much anymore, but it’s still nice to have it when I have the free time. I LOVE LOVE to take pictures. I wouldn’t say I am a professional, but I have fun doing it and I think that should be the point behind any hobby.
Outside of 3 Boys and a Dog, I do have my own blog. It’s Woman of Many Roles. I started blogging in January 2012. I have alot of fun. Everyday I learn something new about the Blogger World. I look forward to learning and just having some fun here on 3 Boys and a Dog!
