Katey and Kyley aren't the only twins in the Stuart family

The Ada Icon talked with the Stuart twins recently. They are freshman at Ada High School. Here’s part of the conversation. Forgive us if we’ve mixed up some of their responses.

What classes are you taking this semester?
Both: Spanish I, Biology, English, Geometry, World History and Art.

I understand you aren’t the only twins in your family.
Katey: We have an older brother and sister, who are also twins - Lee and Lindsay. They are both Ada High School graduates. We also have one older brother and sister who aren’t twins. I think we had great-great uncles who were twins.
