august thacker bohle.

I pushed. He came out. We stayed in the hospital. Now our family of 3 has officially survived our first 8 hours at home. While our little bundle of joy is sleeping peacefully, I thought I’d post a picture or two and the meaning of his name. A lot of people have asked how we came up with August Thacker.

Our next post will share his “birth story”.

I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Marine City, MI. The farm was established by August Wissman who came from Germany to America 161 years ago. The land August farmed is where I grew up and the same farm my dad farms today. August Wissman is a family legend.

Chris’ mom’s maiden name is Thacker.

That one is pretty obvious.

There you have it. August Thacker Bohle. A name with a lot of family history and meaning. Along with August, we plan to call him Auggie. The verdict is still out if we will spell it Auggie or Augie.
