      Same here. I would recommend No, too. I understand the lifestyle choice and how you can’t keep them out of the videos completely. And, I see so much more downside for their own channel and even their insta: embarrassment later on, usage of the videos on the dark net etc.

    As much as I enjoy seeing Lenny and Darwin, I really enjoy watching the whole family dynamics. I think showing the family and the way you guys parent and live, and how the boys are having this amazing life in nature and outdoors and great. I agree with the other viewers that when they are old enough, they can decide if they want to do their own thing. Thanks for another great episode to watch. I love each and every week.

    As a mother myself, I love seeing your boys grow and learn. However, I wouldn't be to keen on putting my daughter on her own channel. I would hate to see any child harshly judged or bullied. When they are older they can choose. I say, for now, let them be the sweet, silly sailor boys we love on your channel.❤️

    I loved this episode, Lenny is just adorable and hilarious! It's great hearing his take on the world from prickles to goats and everything else! I've watched all your videos since Lenny was born (went back and watched everything from the beginning too) so to me the kids are as much a part of this as both of you and the crew and the boat. I don't think you need a seperate channel for them as they fit perfectly into your regular videos. Maybe when they're older they'll want to set one up for themselves, kids are so comfortable with technology and I guess they'll be very savvy about the internet in whatever form it takes in a few years.

    Loved the episode, and I'm so glad you include the kids in your videos - it really gives the dose of reality of what it's like to be in your shoes (or on your sailboat, so to speak). In answer to Riley's question, as a former blogger who shared tons of photos of my daughter from babyhood to about age 7 or 8, I think (like I did) you'll find there's a natural time when you may stop sharing as much about the boys online. Both to protect their privacy, but also to honor where they are at. My daughter loved being a part of my stories when she was young, but started requesting me to leave her out as she got older. You both seem like such great parents and having ongoing conversations as the boys grow will tell you how, when or if even ever you decide to stop sharing their stories. But for now, it's such a joy to see your family as a whole. Thank you for sharing!

    Personally I still love the adult aspect/perspective of the show! I love seeing Lenny and Darwin naturally included as they are. While you have an incredible following, it’s so niche that the kids can easily live a normal life however they choose without being recognized (no one I know has ever heard of SLV) and I mean that in the best possible way. They have the best of both worlds where they are set to carry on the tradition of a career like travel vlogging, or do something totally different without being recognized. Thanks for all of the realness in this episode! That’s what keeps me coming back 💙💙💙

    I'm sure everyone watching understands that the hike to the bridge w/ a screaming toddler was the horrible part - and that the fact the awesome people opened their farm for you (and gave you rides) was a cool experience for Lenny... and people should go visit that farm when it's open. 😘 As far as the question posed: I agree w/ other viewers that they can make that decision for themselves when they're older; right now it makes more sense to view them in the context of your family sailing. 🥰🥰 Much love!

    I’m going to with “No” on the kids-only show. Now, if Lenny wants to grow up and shoot, edit and narrate his own show, fine. I do the parenting perspectives and the “Lenny takes the wheel” episodes. It’s definitely something super cute to do like 2-4 times a year and watch him (them) get better and better.

    When I watch you guys I feel as though I'm watching videos that you've made for you and the kids to look back on - it feels real and authentic. I think a big part of that is the fact that there is a perfect balance of the kids being in the videos but not the sole focus of the video.. Even this episode which was focused on Lenny still felt like a video made for him to look back on and laugh about in 20yrs time. I vote keep doing the odd video like this, it will be cool to see Lennys interests change and his progression with understanding sailing. Also I think Lenny doing a little intro to sailing for toddlers would be the cutest thing

    *Right now it’s a joy to watch Lenny and Darwin only because it’s within the context of your family vlogs so it feels natural, pure, and safe for them to be included in your La Vegabonde channel. It would not be wise nor healthy for them to be included in something that was manufactured at such a young age and I would not care to watch them outside of the context of your family LV vlogs. Right now we love watching them thrive and being parented by Riley and Elayna and Iook forward to seeing how they grow up. Honestly, in the coming decade please just spend as much time as possible introducing and teaching them about the million other interesting, beautiful, vital, and important things in this incredible world and let them develop their passions on their own. Most importantly, please study how to best raise emotionally intelligent young men for they can be successful with whatever they decide to do with their lives. Love you guys and wish you all the best!* ☯️

    Been watching for years, thanks for the journey! Yes, to you and the boys as a family show. For them, let them be kids we love your interaction as an adventurous family. They may make videos when THEY are ready, or not, on their own. Watching both of them come to a sense of wonder is magical for a grandfather. I learned at the knee of my father on his schooner when I was 5 years old. I have sailed almost every year since 1949 for 4 months or more a year. May the wind be at your back and the tide flow fair before you, and all your landfalls hold adventure and bring sweet memories of dear mates to mind. Pax Gaia, Jack

  • Mike's Motorsports and other stuff

    I like the balance that you've had so far. The kids are part of life on the boat, and they are fun to watch learn and grow. At the same time, I like that you don't make the videos all about them. I'm sure that if they are "on screen" 20 percent of the video, they really take 80 percent of your time. Lol An occasional episode like this is good and fun, especially with such a milestone as Lenny being allowed to press the buttons!! 🥳😎 As for a channel of their own... could you do it along with your channel? Sounds like a lot of work! 😆 Finally.. the "safety" aspect.. You both seem very aware of things, you have people around you that you trust, and chances are that your 1.7 million followers (LOL.. sorry.. I had to do it) will be more like a bodyguard in a moment of danger than anything else so...
    Wow that was long... my two cents. Ha!

  • Carol Wain

    This was another great episode and what I loved most about it is the relationship you have with each other and how you parent. Numerous times while watching, I said to my hubby "look at the life lessons they are teaching him at such a young age".
    I wouldn't recommend subjecting them to the pressures of a channel though.
    Firstly, you already know how demanding it is on your time to create such awesome content for your own channel.
    Secondly, let the kids be kids - they grow up far too fast - and enjoy them without the pressure of being a ESclipsr.
    An episode here and there, or a segment within an episode is great, as we get to see how your family dynamics work and we can watch and appreciate their development.
    And finally, we watch all of our fav sailing ESclipsrs on Sunday nights, and we wouldn't add the Lenny channel to the list (there was another family we followed for a while, and we never watched their kids' channel).

    Look forward every week to watching your content. Have loved watching Lenny grow and now Darwin, but think the interactions with the four of you is what captivates us all. Think the Sailing La Vagabonde should include the four of you. When the boys get older, perhaps they would like their own ESclips channel, but for now keep the channel as is. Like Riley mentioned what if the the children's channel really took off - there might be too much pressure on the children. I enjoyed Lenny's Week as Captain!

I personally think you stick with the normal videos and do the odd ones where the boys take charge for the day.

    The kids are lovely and this was adorable… I would recommend waiting just a bit for their own videos . Lenny is just getting into his new age stride.. you both are giving amazing content for ESclips (huge fan from Illinois). If you choose to blur the kids that’s no problem and totally understandable. As a mom I get that choice for sure.

  • JeMiChi90

    I love seeing videos like this! Riley is absolutely right and I think you've found a good balance with the content of the videos. And you are making so many memories as a family. It will definitely be nice when you can revisit those moments in the future through all these videos. I have no idea what my childhood was like in that age, but these two will never forget when they can look at the videos. It's almost like time travel! And the relatives have the chance to follow their growth and adventures more closely than in most families - even when you are physically far away. I think that's wonderful! Of course there is the question about privacy and concent and whether the children want to be so visible online when they grow up, but so far it seems like they don't mind at all. They'll let you know if they don't want the online presence in the future. But I think it's all good, as long as you don't share anything that will be super embarrassing for them later. ^^

    LOVE watching Lenny grow and very much looking forward to seeing how Darwin starts to show his personality. As for starting thier own channel, don't do it. Several reasons. It would double or triple the amount of content filming and editing you would need to do which is a tremendous effort and extra burden, it would detract from the focus of your main channel and it would ultimatley make you both miserable as you would be *just* be creating content and not focusing on being a family and raising these two great kids while living your lives.
    Stay focused on *your* path and don't let the viewers push you into something that you don't want to do. If it doesn't come from your heart then it is just not real.
    In the end, just make the content that *YOU* want to make. We are here for the love and the lol's.

    I love watching the family dynamic between you guys and I love how you guys think so hard and talk to other people before you make these kind of decisions abut your kids. Probably best to wait until Lenny and Darwin are a little older - when they can make their own channel, decide on the content etc. They may never be able to match Elayna's incredible filmmaking skills but we all start somewhere - as you guys have proven from the start. We love you as a family at the moment - seeing how you can bring up a family in such a conscious way is very inspiring. Thank you!.

    Hahaha. Everything about this was great fun....namely the goat/lamb and the entire purpose for the trip! Keep it as the family. If Lenny wants to do some stuff himself when he's 16 or something then go for it. Their own channel(s) now doesn't seem right to me. Keep having fun!!

    I think every once in a while having them in the videos is nice. It awesome seeing your family grow. Maybe when they get older you two should allow them to choose if social media is a commitment that they would want.

    As far as a separate channel for Lenny and Darwin I personally wouldn’t do it. It’s so cool to watch the 4 of you live together and explore/go on adventures and grow as a family😘❤️
    Maybe when they’re older it would be the right time but for now (in my humble opinion!), I would keep doing what you’re doing. You all are like Robinson Crusoe or The Swiss Family Robinson……..it’s just magical to watch how you live😊❤️

Every year that I come home to see my family here my mom looks forward to late nights watching La Vaga. This episode was a highlight for her! Thank you guys 🤙

    I’ve been waiting for Lenny to take over for years now.
    Personally I don’t think you should start a channel just for the kids. Maybe when they are older and they can truly weigh in on if they want to do that and what they would like to show on the channel if they do. I also think that these are cute when people do these as an off shoot but that they pale in comparison to the original channel and are really just trading on how cute the kids are (which is undeniable). I have been watching this channel since before you were pregnant with Lenny and I appreciate how you have integrated them in without it taking over. I do love to see the kids on camera and to see them grow and learn but I think it’s enough to showcase them at times (like on this episode).

    This was hilarious! I normally watch your videos while on the treadmill, and I was taking a drink of water right when you were talking about feeding the lamb with a bottle. When Lenny said, "With MY bottle?" I spit my water out all over the machine in laughter. 😬😅

    I think it will be amazing to watch Lenny and Darwin have their own channel when they are older. 10-15. So they can teach other kids all they have learned about the underwater world and sailing. Safety tips and etc. do’s and don’ts. I love learning and watching y’all and would love to watch your kids teach me the world they explore when they are pre teen or teenagers.

    This was a riot. lol So glad Lenny got to see the goats, lol well done Elayna! While for most YTers, I would definitely say keep the kids off the screen for their privacy, Lenny and Darwin are different. They are growing up in such a unique way with the most unique experiences a kid can have and they will definitely want to see themselves experiencing that one day. They've never known anything but boat life so it's not like you could be stalked to timbuktu like someone can when they have a land address so I don't really worry about safety for them. By the time it's online, you're not even there anymore, you're somewhere else. So for these specific kids, I see much value in watching them grow up unconventionally and seeing how that turns out as a bit of a masterclass in alternative living that is valuable for people to witness. It also makes us less fearful and may calm down a few helicopter parents. lol There are some creeps on the internet though so their own channel, it may be too early for. Wait til Lenny is filming his own adventures and can edit a video, lol That's a lot of extra work for you if you don't!

    Greetings, Elayna and Riley! Just wanted to take a moment to send some good vibes and appreciation your way... Your family's online journey has been organic, good/bad, happy (mostly)/sad, and most importantly, authentic. Couldn't imagine your channel without your whole family living their best life, together. It is so generous that you share your lives with us, with sincerity, week after week, in so many ways. Thank you for being genuine and open...your boys are gorgeous, funny and so bright and it's awesome that you include their perspective of the world as you explore it together with your tribe. Just keep doing your thing with your usual integrity, thoughtfulness, inclusivity and adventure...in other words: just do you!!! Sending each of you only big, positive, fun, funky and peaceful vibes...well wishes from across the universe!

    I agree with what others have said… I love watching the boys learn and explore and getting to see the world thru their eyes is great. But as for a channel for just them… let them decide if that’s what they want when they are older. Let it be their choice. For now, let them steal the camera once in awhile and show the joy they have. Let them be kids. They grow up fast enough. Much love!

    Normally, I would say"no" on a Lenny show. Then I thought about it and remembered that everytime i watch with my grandkids around they only come watch when Lenny is on and then they learn from him. They ask questions, and also want to try things. Maybe one video a week"Lennys Adventures" and sed where it goes😊

    Riley and Elayna, I've watched you since 2016 when I found your channel while on military deployment. I quickly got caught up on your videos and have watched ever since. My son was born just before Lenny and it' so awesome that you decided to include him and Darwin in your videos. Now i'm on another deployment and your videos help me pass my time as I count down the days to being back with my wife and son. I personally like your current format where I get to see you two be parents to the funny little wild dudes. I think you two have always done what works for you and your family and thats what I would suggest sticking to. I'll be around either way.

    I think that the involvement of the kids in sailing is so cute! I see it’s the same idea as parents involving toddlers in cooking, sitting on their lap to “drive” the car, pushing the trolling in the mall etc. this is how they learn in safe and responsible ways!

    I loved this video. I'm really enjoying watching Lenny and Darwin and seeing videos like this, but I feel like the occasional video like this is enough, I personally wouldn't watch a dedicated channel for them as I love seeing you all as a family together, and I also feel like because they are so young, maybe that's something they could do later on in life as they start to get older and can really make the decision for themselves. I love your channel so much, you guys are awesome!! ♥
