Byler Sextuplets, Kindergarten A Second ChanceBy: Jennifer Curra - September 4, 2013
After breaking through the ovarian barrier together, the famous Byler sextuplets are returning to kindergarten; however, this time the group of six will all be separated from one other. The group of five boys and one girl started kindergarten last year, but were placed into two groups of three at that time. This time around, each child will be placed into a different classroom.
The children made history after being Florida’s first set of sextuplets when mom, Karoline Byler, gave birth on September 1, 2007. Karoline spoke about the unique mix of this group of sextuplets. “Five boys and one girl. No one else has that mix in the United States,” she said. The sister and brothers include: Mackenzie, Brady, Eli, Charlie, Ryan, and Jackson.
Knowing when your children are ready to handle certain obstacles is part of the challenges that any mother faces. Karoline Byler decided to have her children complete kindergarten a second time, instinctively knowing what their best interests are. “So everyone is repeating it, but this year everyone is going to be in separated classes. So, everyone will be alone and we will see how that goes,” she said.
Karoline Byler explained why some of her children are adapting more to the start of the school year than others. “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,” she said.
Giving birth to six babies at the same time is not a small feat, so it should come as no surprise that even after six years people are still talking about the news, and sharing in the excitement as this bunch continue to grow.[Videos And Image Via YouTube]
