The Byler sextuplets are going back to kindergarten. ABC News reports on Sept. 4 that the Byler sextuplets are celebrating their sixth birthday. This year, the children are being separated into six different classes in kindergarten.
Karoline Byler’s sextuplets, Brady, Mackenzie, Eli, Ryan, Jackson and Charlie, are learning to adjust to the new kindergarten classes. Their mother states that is has been challenging for some of the children. Mackenzie is more independent and has no problems being separated from the rest of her siblings. However, Jackson is having a more difficult time on his own in a new classroom. Nevertheless, both the teachers and parents feel the separation will force them to create new friendships and play better with others.
The Byler sextuplets were born in 2007 and were the first set of sextuplets in Florida. Their birth made national headlines, and their birthday still attracts attention every year. The Byler children are turning six and have already celebrated with a pool party at home.
Karoline Byler admits raising the sextuplets has been a challenge and often presents unique problems. For example, she recently had to make more than 100 cupcakes, so the children could celebrate their birthdays in kindergarten. Since they had been separated into six different classes, the amount of work was multiplied by six. Although she is used to these types of problems, Karoline states it is still “crazy” and requires carefully balancing each day.
