7 Little Johnstons Season 5 Episode 1: Moving In
7 Little Johnstons reveals that the little family officially moves into their new home. Amber Johnston and Trent Johnston and children Jonah, Elizabeth, Anna, Alex, and Emma, could not contain their excitement as soon as they set foot on the property.
Amber Johnston and her family eagerly explored the house and their designated rooms. The couple has a separate bedroom from their kids. Jonah, Elizabeth, and Alex also get their own rooms, while Anna and Emma opt to share.
Unfortunately, the movers were not able to deliver their furniture and other stuff to the new house, forcing them to wait until the next day to unpack everything.
Anna Johnston’s Naughty Side
7 Little Johnstons episode showcases the naughty side of Anna Johnston. Throughout the episode, the 18-year-old Russian born did not hold back in revealing her playful personality. During the family’s bonding time by the fire pit, Trent Johnston came up with the idea of pranking Anna.
After roasting some marshmallows for dessert, he asked his teenage daughter to go back inside and get some bottled water. He then told the rest of the family to hide behind the bushes and scare her. When Anna returned, the whole family jumped out of the bushes and screamed, leaving her hilariously terrified.
After a fun time together, the family headed inside to call it a night. Amber Johnston and Trent decided to sleep in their still unfurnished bedroom, while the kids chose to sleep in their sleeping bags in the living room. However, just when they thought they could finally catch some sleep, Anna unleashed her naughty side again and kept her siblings up.
The little Johnstons, now annoyed and sleepy, decided that it’s best to just sleep with their parents in the other room. Anna was left alone in the living room, still as lively as ever.

In fact, she was so angry at one point that she bombarded James with text messages asking for an explanation. Amber and Trent Johnston had to take Elizabeth’s phone for a week to calm things down. To cope with the heartbreak, Elizabeth Johnston is spending more time working on her art.

Amber Johnston & Trent Johnston Deal With Black Mold
Meanwhile, the movers finally arrived with the Johnstons’ furniture and belongings. The family eagerly unpacks and furnishes the house with their own stuff. While Amber Johnston and the kids are busy unpacking boxes, Trent Johnston inspects a leak in the ceiling, which goes straight to a built-in bookshelf.
Upon further inspection, Trent discovered an old washcloth stuck in between the walls of the bookshelf. Suspicious, he decided to tear down the entire bookshelf with the help of his family. As soon as the massive bookshelf was taken down, everyone was flabbergasted with what they discovered. The entire backside of the bookshelf and the wall were it was installed were literally covered in black mold.
The condition was so severe and hazardous that the producer was forced to evacuate the Johnstons out of the house. Now, Amber and Trent Johnston are contemplating whether they stay in the house while it’s being resolved or go back to the hotel. Will the Johnstons be able to handle this black mold dilemma? Is their dream house going to be a house of nightmares?
