HISTORY

A Little History:
Our story begins in Pocatello, Idaho, circa 1972, when the lovely Debby Christensen agreed to a first, though fateful date with admirer, David Croshaw. Long story-short, he bade her follow him, and they went arm-in-arm to the Logan, Utah temple for establishment of an eternal family unit, Generation 1, on May 23 1973.

From their first blissful summer in Salt Lake City, educational pursuits took them to Provo/Orem, Utah, birthplace of Leslie and Rebecca, and to San Francisco/Oakland California, birthplace of Colin and Matt. Then, for establishment of livelihood, expansion of the tribe with Abby and Dana, and for raising/unifying of Generation 2, it was back to the roots in Pocatello for a rewarding sojourn.

In time, driven by a raging, but commonly shared sense of adventure and independence, one-by-one, Generation 2 escaped the homeland to distant regions of the country and the world, each ultimately developing their own tribal expansions by pairing with worthy mates and initiating Generation 3.

Now sensing fulfillment of their purpose in Pocatello, Generation 1 has also left those roots and transplanted to Cascade Idaho, from which base, they anticipate more abundant contact with The Posterity, Generations 2 and 3, in the future. That contact however, awaits fulfillment of a call to LDS missionary service in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, wherein they hope to help the state of the world by sharing the love of Jesus Christ.

So now, including Generation 0 (Grandma and Grandpa Christensen) home base includes Yuma, Arizona, Pocatello, Idaho, Cascade, Idaho, Vancouver, BC, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Spokane, Washington, Boise, Idaho, Los Angeles, California, back to Boise, Idaho, and on and on (Generation 3+) to infinity.

Our Mission Statement:
This is the blog of our eternal family unit. Initiated years ago, it served well as a journal, but even more so, as an archive of our personal interaction. It was a gathering place, a confabulation instrument, a unifying force for four generations of widely dispersed and progressively prolific posterity, and their valued associates. Though it served these purposes well for many years, it eventually took a back seat to new-kids-on-the-block, Facebook, and Instagram, and was sadly forgotten.

We now move to resurrect this blog with an added functional purpose of archiving the missionary experiences of Generation 1, of their movements and activities as they participate with The Gathering of Israel in the land northward. In so doing, we hope that via their own comments and posts, this blog will again serve to gather and unify the posterity and their friends.

As in the past, that the young and vibrant may know the old and tired, that enduring bonds may be fostered and maintained, that experience and encouragement may be openly shared, that posterity may embrace truth, and that hearts may be knit together, we must resist detachment despite our geographic divergence. We shall do so here.

OK,i can't believe i am the first to post this. just watched american idol. i was actually laughing through adam's. it was too bizarre for me. really, really liked kris and matt, and anoop!!! really liked anoop. the downside for me to kris, when he sings he moves his mouth and lips like jason--is that the name of the long haired dread locks guy from last season, and that drove me crazy. allison was fabulous, as well. didn't really like lil, michael wasn't great, i don't like the little moves that meagan does, her song was ok, didn't love it. danny was good, but where in the world did that white jacket come from? blind guy can't even think of his name, it was fair. didn't like the little blonde's song very much. who do you think will go? maybe michael, maybe the little blonde? maybe blind guy? mom

i was thinking michael, alexis, or scott might go tonight.
anoop and megan were my favorites. i was so happy that anoop finally redeemed himself, and megan also but her dress was horrible. danny was really good too. lil was not good, but i don't think she's leaving. adam.......oh my WORD! that was just way too weird. what was he thinking? seriously....it reminds me of the movie music and lyrics where hugh grant writes a song for the pop star are she turns it all bollywood. it seemed like a joke. i liked kris a lot, he's starting to prove he should actually be where he is. i was surprised when he made it into the top 12, but now it seems like he belongs.
