Television is getting more and more interesting. This weekly television series about a typical family and their everyday hum drum life. This is the Roloff family Matt, Amy, Zach, Jeremy, Molly and Jacob.
No - No- this family is everything but typical. First of all it is about dwarf parents of 4 children. The mom, Amy, really has her hands full trying to keep up with all the men in the family. The 17 year old twin boys Zach is the dwarf and Jeremy is 6 ft. Then there is a normal size sister, Molly about 12, and a ten year old brother, Jacob age 10.
Zack leads an amazing life on the Roloff farm. He keeps up with his brothers and sisters. This is not an ordinary farm. The dad, Matt, keeps everybody busy always inventing and building some new type of imaginative building on the farm.
There is a Pirates boat, tree house and many other unusual outer buildings. The whole family is so unusual you have to watch every week to keep up with their hectic lives.
It is filled with sports, working, farm work, childish squabbling among the kids. They love to take vacations and you get to go along with them on their various vacations - children's squabbling and all. It is almost like your family vacation.
The family confronts challenges everyday regarding clothes sizes, driving, and just doing ordinary things like grocery shopping.
The dad is handicapped since a small child. He is either on crutches or on an electric scooter. He brings to the television series all kinds of problems the handicapped can come in contact with. It is hard trying to keep up with the walking world. You do not have to be a dwarf to have this issue to deal with being handicapped.
Please keep up the good work Roloffs.
