Ok, here we go!

Well, I finally caved in an started our own blog. I am not sure how often I will write, but after enjoying so many friends's blogs, I could not resist. Hopefully we will use this as a way to keep all of you informed and maybe amused what takes place at the Ansons.
Currently, we have somewhere around 320 chicks (I will have to double check that number with Scott) on the farm, ranging from 4 weeks to about 4 days. The little ones are cute, but they lose their fluff and their appeal very quickly! :) We have orders for several and will be butchering the first batch in a few weeks.
Paul is growing so fast. I imagen that this blog will be mostly devoted to him and pictures of him so his dear Grandma Sue can see him. He was 4 months old last Sunday and is trying really hard to sit up on his own. He rolls over from his belly to his back, but has not quite mastered his back to his belly. He is grabbing toys and chews on his hands all the time. He loves his swings- inside and outside and is enjoying the stroller more and more. (He is not sure about it on windy days, but I keep telling him, "We live in Kansas- you have to get used to that!".)
Scott is enjoying his new job. For those of you who did not know, Scott quit working at CR the end of February. THe second shift was really hard on us and we had been praying for a change for a while. Now he works at Haug Communications in Seneca, a wireless internet provider. He really likes the work and the 8-5 Monday thru Friday is great!!
Well, I will close for now!

How fun!! Don't forget to have Scott take some picture of you to put on here! And since the camera has a timer, you can get family shots too! :)
Love,

Hey hey! The Ansons have a blog now! This is GREAT, Lydia. You can be sure that I'll be back to visit often. It will be especially fun to see how Pauly's growing. :-)

Love you guys!

P.S. Just wanted to say how great that is to hear that Scott has a different job - that 2nd shift stuff sounded crazy! ;-)
