First day of school hectic for one Wisconsin family

BROOKFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - The first day of school is always hard for youngsters and their parents.

But most families got off easy compared to the Beffel family of Brookfield. Nine brothers and sisters in that family started classes Monday, ranging from 4-year-old kindergarten to the senior year of high school.

Their mother, Marisa Beffel, tells WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee that she dropped off supplies at the kids' respective schools so there was no confusion on Day 1. She also said she'd be lost without her calendar -- the one that lists school activities and schedules for all 9 children.

High school junior Lexi Beffel says it gets hectic at her house in the mornings, but it's like a party every day.

If the enrollments are like last year, about 880,000 Wisconsin kids are attending public schools in 424 districts this fall. Most of those districts began classes Monday.
