**I went to a homeschool convention here in my area today. The Duggar parents had a few seminars which I did not attend because the cost to attend the seminars was too pricey for me (although I wish I could have attended).
Anyway they had a booth set up in the convention. It had some of their books that the dad and mom recommend etc. along w/ a computer (I think it was a Mac) set up w/ a slideshow of their family. It was very cute. Here are some things I found interesting that I did not know before:
The kids were NOT all dressed alike.
They were extremely well behaved as they were eating dinner at the booth w/ out the parents in sight. I couldn’t get over how all of them were just sitting there eating so politely.
Mrs. Duggar looks remarkable!!! She looks really great and happy.
Mr. Duggar seemed very nice, I didn’t speak to him but he was at the booth (him and her were there when the kids left after eating, not sure where they all went off to). I heard him speaking to others as I was walking by their booth and he seemed to be a nice guy.
Two of their older boys own a used car business. Did any of you know this? I had no idea that they worked outside the home. I thought that was kinda neat.
The 2 boys that own the car business were not at the convention due to work and also a third son wasn’t there because he was proposing to his girlfriend.
The entire family really did impress me. They just seem so happy, peaceful, down to earth, etc. I really think that my view of them changed just from seeing them in action. The kids are all so adorable!!! I just wish I could have attended their seminars. One was titled “Learning to Love Children like God loves Children”, another was titled “Managing diapers to driver’s ed!! Learning to organize life to be available to serve God and others”. I would love to have heard what they had to say but then again, I wasn’t able to shell out 40 bucks to attend those and the other seminars that were available.
Just wanted to let you all know that they seem like such a nice and happy family. **
