On this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting...
- The Duggars love the water, so Jim Bob and Michelle decided to take them over to a friend's pool for some swimming lessons. The kids had a blast. They wanted Dad to get in on the fun, so they teamed up and pushed him into the pool, clothes and all!
- For an early birthday present, Jeremiah picked out a firehouse-themed chess set. (Do we have a future volunteer firefighter on our hands?) To date, Jeremiah has not lost a single game to any of his 18 siblings. "I beat everyone in my family, except the ones that quit in the middle," says the chess pro.
- Michelle spoke to a MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) group at the First Baptist Church of Springdale on the topic of character qualities. Can you guess the top 3 character qualities that Jim Bob and Michelle teach their children? The first is attentiveness. "If I can't get their eyes, I'm not going to get their hearts," says the mom of 19. Number two is obedience, and the third is self-control. Michelle's final words of wisdom to the young mothers? "Turn your heart toward Jesus."
