Counting On Spoilers – Jill Dillard Schooled Israel Through Pre-K

The news that Jill enrolled Israel in public school came when he was just a few months shy of turning five years old. Four at the time, he was the same age as his little brother Sam in 2021. Well, Israel started at school in September last year, and he took to it like a duck to water. That shouldn’t surprise TLC fans. After all, he had a devoted homeschool teacher in his mom Jill.

The family went for a ride on it. Then in the afternoon, the neighborhood kids gathered around as they fired off the water pumps. At the time, nothing was said about possibly enrolling Sam in public school.
