For Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, life has officially come full circle.
On 19 Kids and Counting Season 8 Episode 4, Jill Duggar went shopping for wedding rings with fiance Derick Dillard, and Michelle knew the place well.
She and Jim Bob went to that same place, 30-some years ago.
Jill and Derick got married at the same church where her parents tied the knot in Arkansas, so it's bringing back all sorts of memories for the older couple.
Bittersweet is a good word for how Jim Bob feels, as he's having a hard time letting go of his daughter. Emotionally, anyway. He does love Derick.
No matter how much he approves and how supportive it is, it's hard for a tight-knit family like this to come to terms with Jill leaving the nest. But it's life.
Make no mistake, for all the Duggar dating rules and things none of us can relate to about their lives, Jim Bob's instinct is to make his kids happy.
Never was this more obvious than when he lobbied to have Jessa Duggar's boyfriend Ben Seewald, who lived four hours away, move closer to them.
Like, a lot closer to them. Think ON THE COMPOUND!
