The Van De Grifts leave Hawaii for their Soldatna, Alaska Paradise

Michael and Amy Van De Grift and their 4 children (ranging in age from 2 to 17) are moving from Oahu, Hawaii, to Soldotna, Alaska. Despite its tropical allure, Hawaii was not the perfect fit for the Van De Grits: their neighbors were too close, and there wasn't a yard for their beloved dog, D.O.G., in Hawaii. So this family of 6 is chomping at the bit to buy their forever "true paradise" Alaskan home. It's an extra plus that their desired Alaskan destination has some of the best nationally-ranked schools in the state AND a wonderful place for kids to thrive and play outdoors and experience all four seasons.
