We are Michael and Sandy of Bountiful, Utah. We have been married for 56 years and are the parents of three children, one deceased, and the grandparents of five super-intelligent, cute, handsome grandchildren.
Our oldest grandson is starting his second year at Utah State University. His Mom is our oldest child, a single Mom working on her Ph.D. in education and works as an evaluating faculty manager for an online university.
Our youngest son and his wife are the parents of our other four grandchildren, twin preteen girls, and two little guys who are preschoolers. Our son went to Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi for his Master's Degree and currently teaches English, Writing, and Film Studies at that school,
From an early age, my wife knew she wanted to be a school teacher. She herself was a great student and even a senior class officer. And she was an excellent teacher!
In contrast, I have never known what I wanted to do when I grew up. I was raised by a single Mom who was partially disabled so I inherited a lot of responsibility at an early age. I had two significant part-time jobs growing up that really prepared me for the future. One, in the summer was working long days on a lawn crew for a landscape gardener. The other, much more significant, was a publishing company where I had a variety of responsibilities, mostly making sure orders were filled and shipped or mailed.
When I say these jobs were significant, I mean they really did prepare me for my future, I have always wanted my yard to look nice and I completely landscaped the yard at a home that we built, complete with lawn, bushes and fruit trees.
And as far as publishing, one year I went with my teacher-wife to the state education convention. I was going through a major mid-life crisis and I was very dissatisfied with my employment. But! When I went into the exhibit areas and saw those reps standing next to their racks of books and even talking to people about books, I thought, "Wow! I would love to do that." Well, the rest is history! Twenty two years in the educational publishing business. I really found my niche and I love the publishing and book selling business!
