17 JulHeidi, Family, and the Summer Triangle

I got roped into a part in a community musical. I was in a play back in high school (a long, long time ago). I was also in a couple of minor productions in college during the semester I thought I wanted to be an actor. In the decades since college I’ve never thought about […]

I have children at several different stages of life. At the top end I have a son who is twenty-nine-years-old. At the bottom end I have a son who is ten-years-old. I have one child, a daughter, at a very special age—twelve-years-old. All the ages have something to offer, but at twelve-years-old this daughter has […]

Me and my son. My son and his daughter.

As far as I know I was the first in my Anderson family line to graduate from college. My Mom had a four-year nursing degree. I believe it was she who suggested I go to college. I couldn’t think of anything better to do so I applied to Brigham Young University and was accepted. What […]

IMG_0543sm

We live on a very limited budget. Still, we like to have fun. I know families that go to Disneyland or Seaworld for vacations. I know other families that go on cruises. If we had more of a budget maybe we would do these things, too, but I’m not so sure. Yesterday I told the […]

The other night I found myself with my twenty-six year old son at the artistic production Linea at Brigham Young University. Linea caught our attention because it included juggling. Rory learned to juggle when he was a teenager. I’ve seen him riding down the street on a unicycle juggling bowling pins. He taught me how […]

16 NovBattle for Thessia – Make Playing Computer Games a Family Asset

Liara_Tsoni_Mass_Effect_3_Wallpaper

Computer games have been a center of controversy for the better part of forty years now. Did they play a part in the Columbine Massacre? Do they aid and abet the obesity crisis? Do they instill into our children anti-social tendencies? Well, in the words of Tevia from Fiddler on the Roof, “let me tell […]

grim-fandango-office-mob

The other morning my nine-year-old son found me eating a bowl of cereal in the kitchen. Instead of grabbing a bowl and eating some cereal too he sat down beside me and started telling me about “Terraria.” “Terraria” is a two dimensional computer game that he and his fourteen-year-old brother have been playing together. They […]
