Between my college years, I worked in central WV. It shocked me to see people with no roof having 4-Wheelers, game systems, etc. It's generational poverty. A nutritionist alone would be useless. Thankfully, June set up accounts for all 5 girls to save the money in a trust fund thing. She said (on WW) she doesn't even see it. (doesn't see it, get it)
Alanna and dance class- If you guys saw interviews June and she did with news/talk shows I guess after last year she was a mess. I think she has some form of ADD/ADHD (coupled with diet issues). I'm surprised she did as well as she did. It's interesting they aren't doing pageants since that's how they came into view. A lot of reality TV is not blatant;y obvious when the producers set up a scene or feed a line. However, the Boo Boo Clan, aren't actress/actor wanna bees. Alanna's fat line, a set up. She always delivers these with a trepidation not found in her natural speak. It makes me laugh.
Pumpkin- Didn't know she was hit by lightening. That kind of explains it. She's a trip, for sure.
Anna/Jessica- Probably a little too old to be the focus. (I want to see what they did w/Kaitlyn's thumbs. We (not me) have a new baby with major polydactyl digits. I liked Jess and Phil. They are cute.
June/Sugga- The poster who says she found the weight? This was filmed as she lost the weight. She looks better. However, she says they didn't alter the diet really, more being out and about. I get it a little better why she can let her feet be as they are because she can't see how really bad they are. Sugga, what else can be said? He's a genuine man. Wants to show his daughters how a man acts, how nice. (If I didn't have one as decent as Sugga, I'd send him to pre-husband boot camp w/Sugga)
In general---Guys, I know so many families like this. I love so many families like this. I prefer these over the Duggar/Roloff/Kate. They are losing some of the rawness they had but they were so raw, it's barely effective yet. Today, I came home to sister house cleaners named "Tatey and Sis." I do say, the food is gaggable a lot of the time but it's cheap and what they are accustomed to. (I don't say afford because that's incorrect) It's refreshing (dare I say) to see a family genuinely unrefined. They take care of each other, love each other, and take joy in serving the community. I hope they can remain connected and fresh (and learn a bit about fresh fruit, veg., etc.). [
