Duggars are not known for thinking ahead.
I watched the video and it was good to see Israel so excited about school. SGirl (13) was watching with me and was instantly annoyed by the “yay” and “are you excited.”
When Jill said she was homeschooled, SGirl said “yeah it shows.” I did explain to my snarky child (no idea where she got that from) that there are many parents who do a good job homeschooling. SGirl retorted, “The Duggars certainly screwed up royally.”
I was surprised at the hour long wait for pick up. I really hope Israel can remain in school, no outbreaks, so he doesn’t have to do virtual school.
SGirl is doing DL but she is already used to being on a schedule. Israel attending school forces Jill into an area of the real world she has never inhabited. Set bedtimes for the boys, making it to school on time, picking up Israel on time. It also gives her one on one time with Sam. The experience will benefit the entire family. I hope Jill grows from this new season of life.
PS. Even distance learning requires more of a schedule than Jill had at the TTH.
