Jill Duggar had a whirlwind weekend with her sister Jinger Duggar in town. Not only was she included in the Duggar women get together, but she also ventured to shop with all of them in tow.

It was mostly a girls-only day, but Jill Duggar brought along Israel and Samuel Dillard along with her. They took part in the Target shopping with all of the sisters and some of the cousins.

Using a cell phone to keep the children occupied

A lot has changed for Jill Duggar over the last several months. She has stepped into the mainstream world. From dressing in up-to-date fashion to enrolling Israel Dillard in public school for kindergarten, Jill is almost unrecognizable.

During her trip out with the Duggar women, she shared some photos in her Instagram story.

Jill Duggar revealed that she was using a phone to keep her children occupied in Target while she shopped with her sisters. This was only shared on her stories, not posted on her public page.

Counting On viewers have watched Jill Duggar grow up. When she was the first Duggar daughter to get married, many believed she would follow in her mother’s footsteps.

That doesn’t appear to be the case at all as she continues to be more mainstream than several of her siblings.

Will Jill Duggar be the most modern Duggar daughter?

Derick Dillard has opened up a lot about what happened between him and Jill Duggar and the rumored fallout with her parents.

The most shocking revelation came when he mentioned they needed permission to be at the Duggar compound. From there, the tea continued to spill.

Amy Duggar King and Jill Duggar are close. The two have been supportive of one another and spend time together. Jill modeled for Amy’s clothing boutique, wearing pants and otherwise unusual clothing choices for a Duggar woman.

Between this and Jinger Duggar’s clothing choices, it looks like fashion-forward is where she wants to be.

The couple moved farther away than most of the siblings, except for Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo. Counting On fans thought it was odd that Jill Duggar didn’t spend any of the fall or winter holidays with her parents. Instead, the couple decided to spend time with friends.

When Jill Duggar was included in the Duggar women get-together, it was surprising. It didn’t take place at the Duggar compound, which is likely why she was in attendance.

Using a cellphone to occupy her two boys while they shopped was a very modern move and one that has set her apart from the rest.
