My name is Kathleen Rauch. I have been married to my college sweetheart Sam for 23 years. I am the mother of 8 children, 6 girls and 2 boys. I am also the caretaker of Rudy, a rescue dog of questionable breeding. What he lacks in intelligence, he makes up for by tolerating a busy household. I am passionate about teaching water fitness including water running and arthritis classes. I love to share stories of my family and interesting things I come across in the news and online. Come get your daily fill of inspiration, humor, and encouragement and then go live your best life offline!
