    8 sets of twins to graduate high school

    RED BLUFF, Calif. - Pity the poor teachers who had to sort them out all these years. On Friday, eight sets of twins will graduate from Red Bluff Union High School. The 16 include three sets of identical twins and five pairs of fraternal twins. Four of them are brother-and-sister combinations.

    "When you look alike and you are in the same class, your teacher often gets you mixed up," said twin Brittany Arnett.

    The twins say they'll have an especially hard time separating to start college, careers and families.

    "When you are used to always doing things together, there has always been someone with you," said twin Amanda McChesney.

    That doesn't mean identical twins are identical.

    Some of the twins still bristle at being dressed alike as youngsters, or getting the same gifts at Christmas.

    "We may share the same birthday, but we have completely different personalities," Andria Ellis said of her twin brother, Derek.

    The same goes for twins Brittany and April Arnett. Brittany wants to be a veterinarian; April, a firefighter.

    "There are a lot of opposites, but there are also a lot of similarities," said Brittany.

    Pay close attention;

    My mom had two sets of twins. One set was with my dad & the 2nd set was with my stepdad. Then they got divorced & my stepdad fathered another set of twins with his 2nd wife.

    So my younger twin sisters have a set of twin half-sisters and a younger set of twin half-brothers.

    Is it good or bad that there is only one of you?

    Re: 8 sets of twins to graduate high school

    My twins just turned 1 on Saturday.
    They are night and day.
    One has ADD(Just Guessing) and was walking at 10 months, the other is laid back and still isn't walking cause she hasn't found the need.

    Having twins is like buying a car.
    You never notice how many there are until you have them.
