Expensive sending your kid to college? Try sending five students at once!


The Chandler quintuplets are going to college! (And their older brother just finished college.) They're heading to University of New England, Ripon College (yay Wisconsin!), Concordia University Nebraska, Norris University, and Regis University. They'll be in different states and studying different things, ranging from nursing to criminal justice.

Check out the video below to see how mom and dad are handling becoming empty-nestera, as well as the financial burden. The kids are getting scholarships and grants, and the family still hasn't decided how to pay the balance, but they're relying on their faith to help them find a solution. (Note that I think it's not the end of the world if the kids take student loans and work while they're going to school. I did it!)
