Leave it to the Duggars to make reality television downright wholesome.

In an interview with PEOPLE, 19 Kids and Counting‘s Jinger and Jana Duggar, the oldest unmarried Duggar daughters, both rave about the benefits of having a camera crew filming every aspect of their lives.

“Having cameras around all the time is kind of like capturing home videos,” says Jinger, 21. “So, like, years down the road, we’ll watch things and be like, ‘Oh my goodness, I cannot believe I did that!’ ”

She adds, “But having it documented – that’s awesome.”

Jana, 25, echoes her younger sister’s sentiments, saying, “You get that home footage pretty much all the time, so you get those memories that have been made together, and it’s really special to look back on those times.”

Fans of TLC’s hit 19 Kids and Counting – which airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET – can see the birth of Jana and Jinger’s nephew Israel David Dillard on May 5 in advance of Mother’s Day.
