One small quibble - Joe and Kendra built the new house. The Duggars have owned the property since 2014, and Joe and Kendra bought it in 2018. (The family business had bought it for $57,000, and Joe and Kendra paid $5000.) The house was completed in 2020, so not long before the Caldwells moved in. It looks prefab and boring, and 1500 sq ft isn't very big, so it's definitely not Joe and Kendra's dream home. (And it's way too small for a family with nine kids ranging from adult to infant.) They might have rushed the construction after they needed a home for the Caldwells.

Thanks for the clarification. I live in the land of overpriced hell, so a very large household  in 1,500 sq ft wouldn’t be that unusual - but it’s more often a bunch of people sharing, two families, multi-generational etc…

It just goes to show how dangerous hitching your cart to the Duggar horse can be. 
Having said that, if you’re going to bring 9 children into the world, you should have some plan for a place to live other than relying on the benevolence of your son in law’s family. 

Yep, this is definitely true. Especially since the Caldwells' youngest two children were born after Kendra and Joe got married. Their second youngest was born after Garrett and the youngest was born 3 months after Kendra's youngest. If anything, they seems the last two kids seems closer in age than many of the kids before them. I get the feeling Mrs. Caldwell is like Jill R; she'd rather have young children of her own than grandbabies.

Is this the home that was filmed during the Caldwell’s latest gender reveal? If so, that home looked larger than 1500 sq ft. It had a large kitchen, living area, several bedrooms downstairs and a full upstairs, which might have been a loft? Maybe that was a later project?

What do you bet JB owned(s) the Caldwells’ former residence (Jed’s place now)? How big is the house? 

Yes, Boob owns that house. It sits on the Champion Motorcars car lot. I'm not sure how large it is.

Following a thread on Reddit that was talking about the Mackenzye (spelling?) possible wedding in like 7 years and the following thought that in 7y and 9m Jb and M could probably be great grandparent, who do you think will walk down the M kids to the altar? Jb or Pa Keller? And then who will become the patriarch of the family? Who will inherit the Tth? If Jb will want to go forage it should be Jd, but sure it will be too big for him, Abbie Gracie, and eventually other kids they may have by that time. If he goes by the biggest family at the moment it will go to Joe and Kendra, other ways if Boob follows sympathy or the kid he sees as the one more like him it could be Jed. I don't think they will keep living there for many other years, it starts to be a big house now that most of the kids have moved out, yes they still have 10 if I didn't miscount at home but the youngest is 11 right? Plus if the rumors are right there may be at least another wedding soonish (either Jana and Stephen or Jer and Hannah). Sooner or later Jb will have to pass the autority, the protection ☂️ to someone else and I don't think it will be one of the inlaws it will have to be one of his sons but who? 🧐🤔

I wonder about them passing that house down too. On the other hand I wonder if they’ll keep it for awhile because A it must be nice to be able to spread out in and B even if you only have two kids and spouses  come over and between them they each have four kids that is ten extra people and that’s hard to absorb in an average size house.. We’ve talked about downsizing and we only have six kids but if they all get married and all have two kids that’s still 24 people to house when they come over...

I fully expect JB and M will stay in the big house forever, but either Anna will get the run of the house as her reward for staying married to Josh, or one of the adults boys will move in with wife/kids. I had assumed that would be Joe and Kendra before whatever falling out happened over COVID restrictions. Now I’d say whichever howler has the most kids back-to-back might get it. Regardless, it will always be the family gathering place.

The Bontrager Family Camp really is the gift that keeps on giving.

ETA: I went on their Insta and didn't see that photo anywhere. Did they already take it down?

Oh God, I can almost see her knee..it's only *partially* covered by her hand. I'm THOROUGHLY defrauded! 

omg i missed that, she didn't though and that's why her hand is there.... 

Imagine how your mind has to tick to even have that be a thought..."oh I must cover my knee' It may have been for balance but I am leaning more towards modesty.

The Bontragers posted pics of family camp. I’m surprised they posted this one since Jer and Hannah are standing so close.

Yes, they already took it down. Glad I got a pic before they did.

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.

      Started prednisolone tablets today because the asthma inhaler isn't enough. Now I have a sore throat and feel like I have a cold coming.  Need the tablets because breathing isn't an optional body function.  Really don't need the tablets if I have an infection brewing.

      My husband commented this morning about how nice the weather is after a cold front moved in last night. Before I could stop him, he asked out loud if I thought this meant an early fall for us.
      That's like when you live up north and start talking about an early spring...
      Be careful, the weather gods are always listening.

      Grew up fundie-adjacent. My mother called herself a recovering fu**tamendalist, & she was not given to swearing. Thankfully she raised me as free of religious weirdness as she was capable. Her mother is all the regressive things -- racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic, ableist, fundamentalist Protestant nonsense, all of it, & longing for a golden past that never existed.
      I'm an atheist with a bit of an obsession about fundies, particularly of the Christian varieties cuz that's what I'm surrounded by. I've been reading this forum for well over a decade now & finally decided to make an account.
      Thanks for having me here.
