Matt Roloff made a new video message for his Facebook Fan page (http://www.facebook.com/RealMattRoloff) via You Tube.
Here are the main discussion points (with some pictures to spice it up). These are all according to Matt, of course. He made no mention of the recent lawsuit the Roloffs filed against Washington County in this update.
*Matt repeated what Amy said in her coffee chat. They flew to Los Angeles for the finale. They got to meet many of the people that worked on the show behind the scenes.
*Matt and Amy reminisced with some of the executives about the very first pilot that never even aired in 2002. It took another year for Little People, Big Dreams to be filmed and released in 2004 and then another year and some for Little People, Big World to air for the first time on television in March of 2006. Matt says that shows it takes patience and hard work to get projects off the ground.
The next few points was basically shooting down some of the things viewers saw and heard in the finale:
Per Matt, Jeremy and Zach no longer sleep until noon
*Matt reports that Jeremy and Zach no longer sleep until Noon. Now that the cameras are gone, they're focused on school and work --according to Matt. They both have a full class schedule at PCC. Zach plays/manages on several indoor soccer teams.
Jeremy has a lingering foot problem that causes him to miss indoor soccer games much to Zach's chagrin
*Matt says Jeremy fills in on those teams when he can; Zach wants Jeremy to play more, but Jeremy has a lingering foot problem which gets painful; Matt says Jeremy will eventually require surgery.
Zach works at indoor goals
*Zach manages/plays on all of those teams and works 30 hours a week, as well as carrying a full load at school
Jeremy is still mulling over his photography educational options after being accepted to Brooks Institute of Photography in California
*Jeremy also carries a full load at school, is busy with photography, making videos around town, doing some photography projects for companies in Hillsboro and is excited about the work he's doing with a large agency in L.A. Jeremy is still deciding on his photography school options
Molly was selected to the state all star team for volleyball
*Molly excels at everything. She is a star at Volleyball (She made the state all star team)and runs the Roloff online store (plug!) http://www.shoproloff.com/
Matt says he's spending a lot of time with Jacob
*Matt says Jacob has become his wingman; Matt and Jacob frequently go to movies and shopping together. Matt enjoys spending time with Jacob.
*Matt wanted to thank everybody, not just the fans that have left warm and kind comments, but all who write about them - the good, bad and ugly -- Matt wants to thank everybody because it takes all opinions to create the kind of success they've had.
*The final point Matt wanted to talk about was his relationship with Amy. Matt says they've settled into life without the cameras and scrutiny, and they will continue to rely on their faith together.
*Merry Christmas and God Bless you all.
