The 19 Kids and Counting family has come under significant fire in recent weeks since word of Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal hit the media. Despite the turmoil the Duggar family is presently facing, it seems like they are trying to present a sense of normalcy to the younger children. Jana Duggar--the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's daughters--is likely one of Josh Duggar's victims. She--like sisters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald, who spoke out about the molestation scandal--has no doubt tried to move on from the events that took place all those years ago.

Jana Duggar has likely found solace in keeping life as routine as possible for her younger siblings, and that recently included hosting a tea party for them.

Michelle Duggar shared word of the 19 Kids and Counting tea party, as well as pictures of Jana Duggar, along with Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace, and Josie Duggar enjoying their 'high tea.'

What fun we can have in one day! Formal high tea party and a great creature hunt (Turtles and crawdads found!). What a perfectly wonderful Saturday spent with these kiddos!

Just a few days earlier, Jana Duggar shared warm words about her mother, the 19 Kids and Counting matriarch.

Love spending time with this sweet lady. So thankful to have her as a role model, a friend and a mom! Always love my time with her. Jana

Do you think life is getting back to normal for the members of the 19 Kids and Counting family? Or are the adults in the family simply trying their hardest to make things seem that way for the younger children?
