More decisions

The last lingering decision that has to be made for school is a relatively big one (at least for us). To split them up or keep them together??? Schools always (or at least almost always) want to split up twins. While I agree that at an older age it would be best I am not sure. My kids are NOT the type of twins who spend all of their time together. When we are in social situations the girls usually play with other kids. I have always thought of that as one of their strengths.

So now we are faced with the decisions of putting them in the same class or in two different classes. I am leaning towards keeping them together. In part because I think it will help with the transition from home to school. On a more selfish note it would be nice to only have to get accustomed to one teacher, one group of aids, one set of rules, one calendar of parties and presentations... it would be a lot times two.

We are not sure what to do at this point. Brian, my Mom and I are all giving it some thought and in a week we're going to discuss. My Mom is a good rational voice on these issues. Plus she has great insight into the girls. Hopefully we will all agree making the decision an easy one. :D

I am also faced with that decision for my twins for 3K next year. I am thinking of keeping them together at least one more year. I think part of my decision is a little selfish because like you said one teacher, one party, one field trip, ect.
Good luck with your decision.

I know this is a decision a lot of us will face. I just didn't expect I would be doing it at 3. I kind of thought that at this young age even school would lean towards keeping them together. Plus I would like to see them both in the the highest functioning class (which they are both eligible). Not an easy decision to make.

I'd say keep them together as long as they want to be together. Certainly there will be a time where the girls will want to become more independent of one another... no need to rush it.
