Answer: We have seven children and have always felt that education could be enhanced with involvement in cultural activities. All seven learned to play the piano and participated in high school madrigals (elite choir program). Two had leads in our school plays and three sang the junior prom theme. Today we have a daughter who sings in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, another who plays the organ at the Bountiful LDS Temple and a son with a rock band. Music has become an integral part of our family life and now the lives of our 30 grandchildren.

Explanations: I am an avid follower of college athletics, but my wife has had a positive influence in bringing balance into my life. We are season ticket holders at The Eccles and The Hale Theaters.
