♪Up ababa world so high ♪ ♪ like an dina in the sky. ♪ (lighthearted music) (Janae laughs) – I think you’re a little slap happy. (Janae laughs) (lighthearted music) (energetic piano music) – Nice. So the kids are doing piano
lessons here in Kansas, City and they are loving it.
Caleb is practicing so much. (brooding piano music) (regal orchestral music) – You could spin me more – Round – Spin me more, spin me more
– Round, and come in – Oh, she thought you
really meant run out. (Kendra laughs) – No, you got to go out. Hold
onto hand, and then you roll. – Okay, so you hold on
me to on the other hand. – Oh, so fancy. – Like that. – The little girls were playing dress up and they needed some dance partners. – Look out, front.
(children mumble) – Oh, she’s up on her tiptoes. She’s spinnin’ around. So, one of the things we need to do while we’re here in
Kansas, City, is go through all the kids’ growin boxes and see what they’re going
to need this next year what they fit, what
they don’t fit anymore. We’re going to start with this box. – No.
– Those ones look like they’re still going to be a little big. – This is Isaac’s old favorite one. – I’ve always been a
big fan of growin boxes. Obviously they save money
but it’s really fun for me to see the clothes that we
already have memories with. – How’s it feel? – Good. – There’s a great play outfit ready to go. So Caleb’s actually been going
through the box really well on his own. He’s made piles of “Don’t Fit” like they’re not going
to fit him this year. And then this pile is things
he already grew out of that are size five. And then this is the
pile he needs to try on. – That shirt’s awesome, I love that one. – Yeah, you remember it? – Yeah. (soft piano music) (“Pink Panther” theme song) – How does it feel to be
back home to our piano? – I love it. Like you
can actually control it. I have like a lot more
space. It’s so much fun. – I love this song. (upbeat piano music) – What are we doing this afternoon? – A service project. – Who planned it? – Me and Isaac. – So this afternoon Isaac and Elise and I and a bunch of our friends
are serving at Harvesters which is our community food pantry. Isaac and Elise actually
planned this service project. The first one that they’ve ever planned. We obviously were helping
them with the process but they were inspired by that service project
we did a few weeks ago at Giving the Basics where
their friend planned one. What we did is we researched together and looked at a few of the different non-profit organizations
where they could volunteer. They chose it, set up the time and then we invited our
friends. Pretty simple. (hopeful music) Step One: wash your hands. So was it hard to organize
the service project? – Not really. You only had to find out a time
when people were available. And then make an appointment to do it. – Yup. (hopeful music) – At the food pantry they have
a lot of donated food here. So we’re going through the oranges getting rid of any that
aren’t good anymore. We’re putting ten in each of these bags. And that way it can be distributed to the people who are needing the food. – Nine – One more. Then you get to tie it off. – Ten – So, is this very fun? – No (mumbles) – But is it fun to be with friends? – Yes. – So Isaac and Elise and Kendra are off doing the service
project. I’m here with Caleb. And we’re still going through the shirts. (playful electronic music)
– Whoa. – As you can see we still have a lot more. – It’s kind of cool that
we have hand-me-downs. – Yeah – I had an older brother Which one is your favorite
shirt that you’re getting? – A lot of these are like
Isaac’s old favorite shirts. – Mm-hmm (affirmative) – In older videos he’d wear these a lot. – And now they’re yours. – Yeah. – Ooo, is this a new vest? – Yeah – Lookin sharp – So we’re sorting through the oranges and we have to pick out all
the moldy ones and package them – Eww!
– It’s kind of gross. (lively funk music) – These are all the bags we
have to fill. All of them. Just kidding. Just kidding,
that would be so many oranges. (funky music) – Okay this is two hours
of sorting oranges. The kids are being troopers. They’re finding ways to make it fun. I don’t know if we’re
going to be craving oranges by the time we leave here. – Someone woke up a little
bit grumpy from her nap. You okay? You want to snuggle? Do
you want to read books? One dog. Woof. Two dogs,
woof, yap yap yap yap. Five dogs, woof, yap yap.
Woof woof woof. (howls) – You’re cute. (Jeremy laughs) – It’s a little stinky-too. And one cat. Oooh, the vest and the
tie. That’s pretty sharp. – Daddy (fast-paced electronic music) – So we’re going on a tour
of Harvesters facility now and one things they explained
is that they need six to 7000 volunteers a month to be
able to do what they do here. That’s amazing. (funky upbeat music) – We love all our cooler space, right? – My lips are like frozen. – Cold! – This is a freezer with
all of the ice cream in it. It’s so cold in here. – Playing the piano for us? (Janae babbles) – Okay, you play it. (discordant piano music) ♪Twinkle, twinkle little star ♪ ♪ how I wonder what you are ♪ ♪Up ababa world so high ♪ ♪ like an dina in the sky. ♪ ♪Twinkle. ♪ – Dance. ♪Twinkle, twinkle, little star. ♪ ♪How I wonder what you are. ♪ – Well I’m really proud of Isaac and Elise for helping organize that service project and it was a fun thing
to do with our friends. It was interesting during the tour because we heard about
so many different things that you can do at Harvesters. So, now I want to go back and volunteer so I can try all the different things. It sounds really fun to
pack up the backpacks with the snacks for the weekend
and it sounds really fun to sort through the bins so you get to pick out of the
bins that have been donated and put them all in the right category. Anyway. There’s lots of
different ways to volunteer there and I really appreciate
that way of spending time with our friends and family. – Janae’s playing Whack-a-Mole with Caleb. (party country music) – All right, Caleb has
challenged me now to Battleship. – All right, what do you
like about this game Caleb? – That it is a battle. – It’s very strategic. – Yeah B5 – Miss! I’m going to try B5 on you! – Hit (Jeremy laughs loudly) – Hah, gotcha! – (Caleb laughs) – You’re playing Nae-nae? – She’s putting the little pegs on. This reminds me of Star Brite – What’s that? – (Lite Brite commercial theme song) – Just pop in the colored
pegs and follow the patterns. It’s easy to make beautiful
pictures with Lite Brite. – It’s a toy where you do art
by putting pegs that light up. – F3 – F3. Miss! – All right, let’s do B4. Did I hit? – Miss. – Ya, man – D’you sink my battleship? – Yeah – You stinker – Uh.
– Woops – So Janae is definitely in a stage where she wants to do everything herself. especially putting on her shoes. Are you going to put your socks on? – Nae’s (mumbles) – Nae is strong. – Ma, help. – Do you need some help
with that? There’s one sock. ‘kay, you going to put those shoes on? Do you need some help? – No Nae got it, Nae (mumbles) do myself. – Nae does it herself? We’re on like the attempt number seven. – Nae trying it. – Nae’s trying again. Janae, do you want me to help you? – No, Nae got it. – Nope, Nae got it.
– Ah this one’s off this foot. – Yup that one goes on that foot. (playful jazz music) – Okay! Oh shoes. Uh. – (gasps) Did you get it? She got it! Look at that perseverance. She got it. Keep trying Nae, you can do it You can do it. (happy jazz music) You did it. Janae did that guys. Janae
put on her own shoes. High five. I’m proud of
you. You ready to go? – Yeah. See, oh. – So we just discovered
a little spider. Oop-! – sy daisies. I thought you were going
to sing to it. Janae. (Kendra laughs) Okay, the reason I turned the camera on because she was so cute sitting here singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” And then she just stomped on that thing. ♪Itsy-itsy spider though ♪ – When I was at the store the other day in the clearance section
were some fun new games. And so I picked up one that we tried last night
and we really liked it. But I can’t remember the name of it. – OK Play – It’s called OK Play? – Yup
– Okay, just play! – All right. You’re up Laura. – Laura makes a first move. Dun, dun, dun. So the goal of the game
is to get five in a row either straight in a line or diagonally and there’s no board. You just play. – Is Janae playing for your Jeremy? – I don’t know if I had a choice. (playful music) – Oh, that was a good move too. – I’ll make a corner. Oh! (children laugh) – Now you stopped him. (Jeremy laughs) – (gasps) Uh oh, come, she
just gave you the wind. (magical music) Good game dude!
– Oh I didn’t see … – So I love that this game
was super easy to learn. And everyone can play. – Laura wins it, five in a row. Boom! Boom, boom, boom badoomboom. – Good job Laura!
– Boom! – She was winking at me. Did
you know you were going to win? So playing games as a family is really fun but it’s also really hard. Maybe it’s just our
family and our kids’ ages but taking turns is
hard and losing is hard. Watching other people win is hard. So, that’s something
that sometimes I’m like “Uh, I don’t know if I
feel up to playing a game” But it’s really important for the kids like I know they need this
practice to be able to learn it and we have some really great experiences so I like that this
game was quick and easy. It says its’ quick and easy to play We can play it over and over again and hopefully lots of people get practices winning and losing and taking turns. (playful music) – Go ahead. (playful music) We put the kids over there. Kendra and I are eating over here. It’s like a romantic date night. – Oh yeah – So Isaac and Elise both
got soup, which is fun. Soup. Soup. – So these are cheese curds They’re special to Culver’s
and they’re really good. – Fried cheese. I’m a fan. – You like those? Laura just told me “My chicken nuggets have
cheese inside of ’em” “No, those are called Fried Cheese Curds” – I love this soup. – It’s amazing. – This is good. – Yeah? – Yeah. – There you go. – I like invented a
lot of different kinds. – Oh!
– Like using the flavors – Uh-huh – Um, and we want all them
except for the bottom one. – Oh, okay! Really? That’s pretty awesome. Okay, what sizes do you
guys want in all these? – We’re going to do all smalls. – Can you just ask which one
he’s most excited to try. – Uh, it’s hard between
Elise’s, yours and Dad’s. – Half of them.
– I think probably Elise’s – Iron Man. – Yay.
– (mumbles) strawberry basil – Watermelon. Lemon and coconut. – Lemonade. – Sweet. – Polar Banana.
– Which one is that one? – It’s banana and coconut
and vanilla almond. – Is it cool to see your
dreams becoming real? – Hey bud, do you want to try it? (Jeremy laughs) (Kendra laughs)
– There’s the Wolverine. – It’s black cherry and
grape and something else. – And Silver Fox. – And Silver Fox. – Nice. I love Silver Fox. It’s Frozen Pink. – So it’s strawberry, coconut,
cotton candy and bubble gum. Tell us the flavors of yours? Oh! – Cotton Candy, Blue Hawaii and lime. – Janae’s is called Bird Pee. – Named by Kendra. (Kendra laughs) – So mine is gorgeous,
it’s called Coral Reef. Isaac, look at it. Look how it turned out.
– It looks Coral Reef-ish – It does. – So everyone’s trying everbody
else’s. Is that Elise’s? – Yeah
– It is really good. – She likes mine better – Caleb is eatin a lot of mine.
He likes the banana flavor. After trying all of ’em,
which one was your favorite? – Tropical Punch, but, yours
was really close, (mumbles) – The Banana Polar Bear – Yeah – So Elise’s Iron Man was my favorite because I love watermelon. – Nae-nae all done. – Nae-nae’s all done.
She’s cleanin up now. – So one of Kendra’s super powers is picking books for our kids. We just went to the library and drove up they have the drive-through library. And all the kids are, like, loving whatever books she picked for them, so I love that about Kendra, it’s
such a blessing to our life. So we took baths, got our jammies on and gettin ready for bed. (Janae babbles) – A toodey todd, a toodey
todd, a toodey todd! – Whoah-ah! (Janae and Jeremy laugh) – You did it! You didn’t take a very long nap today. (Janae laughs) – I think you’re a little slap happy. (Janae laughs) Boo! (Janae laughs) – So we’re starting a new read-aloud it’s called “Dominic” I’ve never read it before, so
it’s new to the kids and me. But it comes well-recommended. We’ll see. We’re on the third chapter already. – And how are you kids liking it? – It’s amazing.
– It’s amazing. – I love it. It’s so
interactive. Like it’d say “What would you do if you’re
in this position?” Or like, – Oh, that’s cool.
– “which road would you take?” – How fun! – It’s funny because it’s
been recommended to us for a while but, to be honest,
it didn’t look super exciting I’d never read it before and it just always looked a little boring. And so I was talking
to the kids about that and we started singing
that song from that movie. What’s the movie called? – “Mary Poppins Returns” – “Mary Poppins Returns”.
