The Byler kids have started kindergarten — each in separate classrooms. Apparently it's been a tough transition. It's the first time the five brothers and one sister have been on their own since they were born.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Florida's first sextuplets turn 6 this week. And the Byler kids have also started kindergarten - each in separate classrooms.

Apparently, it's been a tough transition with a lot of tears. It's the first time the five brothers and one sister have been on their own since they were born. It also made more work for their mother. She had to bake 120 cupcakes so that each of the six children would have enough for each classroom party.

It's MORNING EDITION.
