“Because Adam travels a lot for work, we’ve been able to save up lots of frequent flyer miles. So we started a tradition of traveling that, so far, we’ve done with the three oldest children. One at a time, Adam and I will take each of the children on their own, personal trip to anywhere in the United States. They get to choose where we go, and it has become a special bonding experience for Adam and me to have that time with them.”

Can you introduce me to your family?
Jen: My name is Jen White, I live in American Fork, Utah but my family and I are all moving to San Clemente, California. I like to read and write, and our family likes hiking, camping, and going to the beach. I’m the oldest of five in my family, and my husband is the oldest in his family, so we both grew up learning how to get our way. We’ve worked it out now.
Adam: All that means is that one of us has learned how to not get his way. Let’s put it like that (laughs). My name is Adam White. I work for a software company based out of California. I enjoy sports; I play soccer and basketball, and now that we’re moving to California, I’m looking forward to surfing.
Spencer: My name is Spencer White. I’m the oldest of five. I like to play soccer, and I like building stuff.
Jen: Spencer is very mechanically minded.
Sophie: My name is Sophie, and I am twelve years old. I like to play tennis and volleyball. I love soccer as well. I like to draw and do all kinds of art.
Grace: My name is Grace and I am thirteen. I like to read and write and draw. I also like to play the violin and the ukulele.
Adam: Grace kind of lumped reading and writing and drawing all together, but she’s really an aspiring writer; she takes after her mother.
Grace: I’m on this website called Kidpub, and it’s a website where I can go on and write stories to post. Then other writers and guests can read the stories. I like to write fantasy stuff, mostly, but I also like to write realistic fiction as well.
Lucy: My name is Lucy and I’m six. I like to color and draw. I like to paint my nails and do makeup with my friends.
Jen: And our youngest, Lola, is two. She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and anything that her older siblings do.
