My name is Allen Arseneau.  

This blog captures my adventures of becoming a Big Brother to a wonderful 7-yr old boy named Hunter.  My  own adventure began almost 28 years ago, when I became a Little Brother myself.

Boston BIG - A blog about being a Big Brother

This is a blog about my experiences become a Big Brother to a wonderful 7-yr old boy named Hunter.

My name is Allen, and I am a Boston BIG.  I live in the Boston area, and am a BIG Brother (Big Brother Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay Organization) to a 7-year old boy named Hunter.  Hunter lives with his  grandma and 4 siblings, and is in kind of a tough situation.  So, I am a positive adult role-model in his life.  I take him out about 3 times per month.  We have a blast.

People are often surprised by how much fun Hunter and I have on our many outings, so I decided to write this blog to capture some of our adventures, and to keep somewhat of a diary for Hunter.  

I personally know how beneficial having a BIG is.  I actually got my own BIG about 28 years ago, when my mother realized that her sons needed help.  My BIG, Paul, became my mentor and guiding light as I grew from a Boston troubled teen into a Stanford alum and business owner.  I talk to Paul almost every week nowadays.  Eventhough I have a wonderful 8 year-old daughter of my own, and run a start-up, I find a few hours each week to take Hunter out.  In fact, it is just as much a break for me as it is for him.

I hope you enjoy reading about some of our adventures.

Hiking, granola bars, and a touch of regret

Hunter and I went hiking today at the Blue Hills.  We walked along the snowy trails, followed running water, and ate chocolate granola bars.  Hunter got pretty excited by those Trader Joe’s granola bars…but they are pretty yummy afterall. 

As we were walking, and Hunter was jumping from rock to rock, or leaping over running water, I couldn’t help but think that it’s so cool that he has so much fun when he’s with me.  He is such a sweet boy.  He just wants (and deserves) to be happy.  It makes me wonder what the heck I was thinking to have waited so long to become a Big Brother (hint - if you are thinking about it...I would seriously recommend just doing it...it's so much fun, and it's really easy. www.bbbsmb.org).
