While Jill and Derick Dillard have had their fair share of sadness over the last few weeks, they know that their focus can’t always be on the negative. In fact, the Counting On alums has actually done a pretty good job of putting the sadness of a miscarriage in their rearview mirror.
Some of those efforts have made it clear that that they are indeed going to move on, but not forget. It’s also been clear that the two parents are big about including their kids in that sort of moving on. In fact, they even had some help picking out the tools they are using in order to move on from the miscarriage and start smiling again.
Jill And Derick Dillard Dive Into Sports
At least one way the couple is moving on is by embracing the college football season. It helps that the pair’s favorite college team is having quite the season. Now, son Israel is joining in on the fun.
In a recent Instagram post, Jill showed off how exactly that’s being done.
“Go Pokes!” she wrote. “It’s book character day today at school and Israel is following in the steps of grandpa & dad by dressing up as Oklahoma State University’s mascot #pistolpete …complete with a white handkerchief like @derickdillard used to wear.”
Alongside the caption was several pictures, including the main one that indeed showed Israel decked out in the OSU outfit. His dad was standing by his side, clearly happy his son was following in his footsteps.
Jill went on to say that they are very much ready for Oklahoma State’s homecoming weekend. She also let it be known that this wasn’t going to be anywhere near the first time that the pair had gotten ready for the Cowboys’ homecoming. In fact, a few years back, she said, they went together.
Back then, it’s likely their romance was just starting to bud, but it’s clear it was indeed a real romance.
It’s pretty clear that Jill and Derick Dillard are both quite happy that Israel is putting on his own version of Pistol Pete. Even if their son wasn’t wearing the oversized head that is part of that particular costume. It was also quite funny to see the book that Israel picked in order to put on that costume. He was holding a book that is officially sanctioned by Oklahoma State titled, “Hello, Pistol Pete!”
Fans Sound Off
It should come as no surprise that several of Jill and Derick Dillard’s fans were all about this particular post. Some expressed the opinion that Israel needed to be the third member of the family to put on the Pistol Pete costume for real.
“Love this!!” one fan wrote. “Really hoping for the 3-Pete! Let’s go Pokes!”
