Playing Josh and Anna Duggar Go Furniture Shopping in First Sighting Since Leaving Rehab

Josh and Anna Duggar are returning to normal weekend activities as a family.

The two went to Sam's Furniture in Springdale, Arkansas, on Saturday afternoon, ET can confirm, browsing with another couple.

"I don't think they were shopping for themselves," a source tells ET about the casual outing at Northwest Arkansas' largest furniture dealer.

Anna and Josh were reportedly accompanied by Anna's sister, Priscilla Waller, and Priscilla's husband, David, the Inquisitr reports. It is the first-recorded public sighting since Josh exited rehab earlier this month, after spending more than six months at a faith-based treatment center in Rockford, Illinois.

But a source close to the Duggar family tells ET that Josh "was not around" during the family's Easter celebration the next day.

"The Duggars spent Easter as a family," the source says. "There was lots of food and fun. Members of the family were hanging out for hours. Josh was not around."

"The family is doing well and just focusing on themselves," the source adds.

Still, the Duggar family was nothing but supportive of Josh after the 28-year-old former lobbyist left rehab.

"It was a crucial first step in recovery and healing for Josh," the Duggars wrote in a blog post. "We look to God for help and guidance and place all of our trust in Him. We are forever grateful for the love and prayers offered by so many and hope you will continue to pray in the days ahead."

Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, said that their embattled son will "continue professional counseling and focus on rebuilding relationships with his family."

"The devil took his best shot," John-David Duggar also told Good Morning America earlier this month about the highly publicized scandals involving his older brother. "And he tried to take our whole family down, but God has really used this to -- instead of tearing us apart as a family, he's using it to draw us together, so for us, we've forgiven, and we're moving on, and we're looking to the future."

The former 19 Kids and Counting star entered a faith-based treatment center in August 2015, shortly after an Ashley Madison hack led to his admission that he had been unfaithful to Anna, and that he battled a secret addiction to Internet pornography.

That scandal came to light mere months after Josh admitted to molesting five minor girls, including four of his sisters, when he was a teenager.

But will we see Josh on the small screen again in the future?

Last month, a source exclusively told ET that the Duggar family had already been filming for a few months for a still-undetermined show or special, and that they were shopping at a store with a camera crew. But there is no word yet if Josh will be on the new show.

However, not everyone appears to be happy with the family's alleged return to reality TV -- people in town were angry to see the crews back, the source noted. "There is a lot of hate regarding the family," the source said. "After all that has happened, this isn't the same family in many people's eyes."
