It’s been a long road for the Duggar clan from Tontitown, Arkansas.
Over the past decade, we’ve watched Jim Bob, Michelle and kids go from the stars of a limited-run TLC documentary series to one of the most famous families in the history of reality TV.
During that time, the family expanded (There was a time when they were a scant 16 kids and counting!) and endured some incredibly dark times. (The
Josh Duggar sex scandals will rightfully never be forgotten.)
Not surprisingly, the Duggars have changed as individuals as much as they’ve changed as a family since gaining fame.
Check out the slideshow below for a trip down memory lane, and as always, you can
watch Counting On online at TV Fanatic to get up to speed on what the Duggars are up to these days.
The Duggars in 2004
We guess khaki was really in that year. As for Michelle’s hair? There’s no explaining that.
Duggars in 2014
The Duggar family just a few short years ago. Much has changed, but some things never will. (Michelle’s hair still defies all logic.)
