    After watching the episode when Zack needed surgery, I was wondering how insurance companies can really truly justify dwarfism as a pre-existing condition as a way of avoiding to insure these individuals. Sure, there are many complications, but are dwarfism's complications any more serious than a premature baby growing up who started out with some additional baggage. So let's see, if Molly gets married, has children and some turn out to be little people, could she be insured, but not those particular children?
    Great series.

    I think that is a bunch of bull crap. Sounds prejudice to me..

    Making them cover all those hospital expenses out of pocket is so unfair.

    Not sure if anyone caught the latest. The new kitchen/family room is beautiful. I did notice that the PELLA windows had at least a 30 second *blip* so I surmise that Pella provided the windows either free or no cost.
    The same with the floor, of which I don't recall the name on the boxes of hardwood flooring. Wish I could afford a kitchen like that.

    I enjoy watching this family too.

    One thing I was wondering though.. when Zach finally passed his driving (written) test, they printed a license right then and there at the DMV. Didn't he do any DRIVING test?
    They never showed him with a DMV test man/woman...so I'm sorta worried. Worried because..it shouldn't be that simple to get a driving license in Oregon!
    Since it was such a big deal for him, considering he failed the written (I think) 4 times, you'd think that they'd really want to show him toiling with the driving exam too.

    Anywho.. yes, I love the ranch!!
