The Byler sextuplets are headed to kindergarten.
According to ABC, this will be the first time that the 6-year-olds will be separated at school.
The Byler sextuplets attended pre-kindergarten last year in groups of three. Mother Karoline and the children’s teachers decided that it would be good to completely separate the kids this year for kindergarten.
That means that Brady, Eli, Ryan, Jackson, Charlie and Mackenzie will be on their own for the first time since they were born on September 1, 2007.
Karoline said her one daughter, Mackenzie, had no problem going to school on her own.
Karoline said: “Five boys and one girl. No one else has that mix in the United States… She plays with the boys, but she’s used to being an individual more than the boys.”
The Byler sextuplets started kindergarten a few weeks ago and Karoline said that some of the children like school more than others.
Karoline said: “Some of them like it. Some of them don’t. The ones that are more boisterous and outgoing are fine. The ones more quiet don’t. Jackson cried the whole way to school on the first day of school.”
Separating the children has also been a little difficult on Karoline and her husband Ben. The parents now have to keep up with six different teachers. Karoline said that she brought more than 100 cupcakes to the school last week because she had to celebrate birthdays in six different classrooms.
