Ever wonder how we manage to feed a family of ten? While we have a “never ending” supply of milk and eggs, it all starts with grocery shopping. During this video, you can see what food shopping for our family looks like! Impressive, huh?!?
There are ALWAYS chores to be done at the Jonas house. Find out which chores the children handle and how they try to manipulate the chore system! How do you work chores at your house?
Why did we start a family business? Not just to support the family financially. Watch the video to discover our reasons. Do you have or want your own family business? Why?
My life is crazy busy and I need to make some hard choices on how to spend my time. One of the items that is important to me is exercise. It is important not only for my own health and sanity, but it is important that the children learn from an early age to build […]
We LOVE to travel! We don’t get to do it as often as we would like because of the goats, but we always take advantage of every opportunity that comes our way. Normally it takes a LOT of time to plan a vacation for the ten of us. We have to figure out sleeping arrangements […]
We’re starting a new series of videos that will help you get to know our family better. We’re calling them “Hang 10” since there are ten of us in the family. If you’ve ever wondered how Jim and I met, this is the video that reveals how it all started! What did you think? Bet you […]
I have received the nicest comments from some of the people who saw us on The Huckabee Show. But my FAVORITE one was from a 70 year old man, who said that watching me on the show made his heart go “pitter-patter!” When I shared that with Jim, I don’t think he enjoyed the comment […]
We wanted to put together a video that demonstrated the youngest person rule in action at our house. We accomplished our goal. But if you’ve ever thought that nothing ever goes wrong in our lives, here’s your proof that we mess up too! How funny was that?!?
What is a wet shave? What is a dry shave? Isn’t it all just cutting whiskers? Well, yes. A dry shave typically uses an electric razor (hence the lack of water), and a wet shave uses any number of razor blades with a lubricating agent and water. Either way, you get your whiskers cut, and […]
Do you hate paying taxes? You’ll love this! Brett wrote and performed this parody of the song, “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” from Disney’s Oscar-Winning animated film, Frozen, that we can all relate to. Please like, share, comment on and generally promote this video if you love to see hard working youth using their […]
I have to admit that red t-shirts were not my idea. But I love it! It’s brilliant and has made doing the laundry so much easier! Didn’t Brett do a great job? And, yep! She really is a super big sister!
All the Jonas children are very hard workers and have a lot of responsibilities. Indigo (7) and Jade (6) have been doing their own laundry (with our laundry soap) for several years. In this adorable video, they tell you all about it! I’ve said it before, but I just have to say it again. They’re […]
Brett is one of the most amazing young ladies I have ever met. Yes, I’m her mom. And yes, I’m biased. But it is still true. Just watch this short video if you don’t believe me! I have loved watching her mature and grow, and develop her own opinions and thoughts. Listening to her in […]
This year we cut down a HUGE Christmas tree for the new house. We thoroughly enjoyed decorating it and the beauty it added to our Christmas season. Disposing of it was quite an adventure as this video shows: I loved watching the children learn the “easy” way to drag a tree. LOL How do you […]
As a homeschooling family, I don’t want my children to just memorize facts, I want them to be able to think analytically and learn how to make good decisions. In this video, Colter talks about his role at Goat Milk Stuff, but if you listen carefully, you can hear how he puts into practice his […]
