The first set of quadruplets to walk the halls

The chance of having quadruplets is about 1 in 800000. The McKellar quadruplets beat the rare odds and walk the halls with the other students in the freshman class. The quads are fraternal and include one girl: Skylar and three boys: Ashton, Keegan and Garrett.

“Being the only girl in a set of quadruplets can feel lonely sometimes,” freshmen Skylar McKellar said. “All three boys play soccer together and share a brotherly bond. Even though sometimes I feel left out, I still am close with my brothers at home. They give me good advice and still care for me a lot.”

The McKellars do not receive attention for being quadruplets unless they are the ones who mention it, or peers already have prior knowledge of them.

“Since we all look different and have different personalities, most people wouldn’t even realize that we are quadruplets, let alone siblings, if it wasn’t for our last name,” Skylar McKellar said.
“So honestly it doesn’t really feel special being a quadruplet because this is all I have ever known.”

Growing up, the Mckellars have had to share a lot of things such as clothes and a room, since the boys are the same age and size. The quads also claim to have arguments over little things just like normal siblings.

“There is one specific word to describe being a quadruplet- chaotic,” freshmen Ashton McKellar said. “This is because we are all always going to different sports practices or friends houses to hang out. It gets stressful for not only us but our parents who do all the driving, since we can’t drive yet.”

Besides the McKellar’s differences, they will always keep the special bond that only a set of quadruplets would know.
