Matt Roloff interview with the Vancouver Sun - How things have changed for the Roloff family

Matt Roloff did a new interview with the Vancouver Sun. They did an article about him a couple of years ago. The theme is about how things have changed for the Roloffs since the last time they talked to Matt.

To summarize the notable parts of the article:

*Matt reiterates that when Little People, Big World began in 2006 only Matt and Jeremy were in favor of the show. Zach disliked the show the most.

*Today, Matt says they've all adjusted well including Zach and Amy.

*Matt says Amy's opinion about the show has changed the most. Amy's expressed this in her speeches and interviews as well. Matt says Amy doesn't just tolerate the show now, she embraces it.

*Matt thinks the show is successful because they don't "tidy up" for the cameras and it appears authentic.

*The article states: "And while the show has underwritten house renovations and ensured the kids' education, Matt will tell you that the best thing that ever happened to his family was buying that farm after he and Amy married in 1987."

*This past pumpkin season attracted over 50,000 visitors.

* Matt is confident that when the show is eventually finished, the kids will do well and drift back into normal society.

*Matt states that he's looking ahead to the end of the show. He says he looks forward to slowing down, reading and finishing projects around the farm.

*He points out that Amy is the one who is now more out in the public.

*About the upcoming season, Matt says Jeremy and Zach are talking college, Molly's grade 8 graduation and he mentions Jacob's experience hiking in Michigan (the previously mentioned tick).
