Music is always playing somewhere in John and Teri Bolton’s Craig home — faint, sometimes, but there nonetheless. It drifts down the stairs into a cozy room where John, 43, and his wife, Teri, 41, are recalling their life together, with its allegros and adagios, its peaks and valleys. It’s barely audible when their seven daughters talk over each other, their voices melding like instruments in a symphony. “Well, I was really good looking and kind of smart,” John said, laughing, when asked what brought he and his wife together. “He had big glasses,” one of his daughters quipped. “… They were huge.”
