Hahn Family Update

As I look out the window of my office, well, actually it's a spare bedroom but I like to think of it as an office, the wind is blowing and it's about 13 degrees.  Nonetheless, my boys are sledding down the hill just outside the window and having a great time.  To be honest, I have no idea what I'm writing about right now which is often the case.  There is so much going on in the Hahn home that I thought writing would get it out of my system and clear my head.

This week I started a new job with Nationwide Insurance as a Life Insurance Specialist.  I left the Knights of Columbus for many reasons that I won't get into here.  I'm happy to have another job and the opportunity for growth and advancement.

It's a very challenging time with Nicole homeschooling, me taking a new job, and our 7th baby due within the next two weeks.  We had to upgrade to a larger van.  We call it Shadowfax.

Catherine started walking at home over the Christmas break which was a great gift to all of us.  She has walked at school for a couple of years now with the help of a walker but almost never on her own at home.  One evening Anthony asked if she would like to walk, got her walker, and she took off.  She now uses it around the house whenever she likes.  Maybe in a few more years she'll be walking without the walker!  I don't doubt that she can do anything.  I learned that lesson long ago.

We're all looking forward to spring when we will be diving head-long into our family farm that we have with my parents.  Last year we dabbled in some things and had a great response so we're going deeper this year.  The boys loved the work as well as the money they earned and what we didn't sell helped fill the freezer.  This year we'll be expanding the produce garden, raising broilers as well as egg layers, and getting some more bee hives.  Dad will continue to offer sheep and provide much of the prep-work for the fields since he's retired.  Check us out on Facebook at Amazing Grasses Family Farm.

Please keep us in your prayers and we'll do the same for you!
