Thursday will be a quiet day at the $1.1 million Gosselin family home in Wernersville, Pa: All eight children are now in school.

Kate Gosselin sent the kids off Thursday morning.

The six-year-old sextuplets -- Aaden, Joel, Collin, Alexis, Hannah and Leah -- all wore matching sweatshirts (boys in black; girls in white) and jeans. Nine-year-old twin sisters Cary and Mady also boarded a bus.

Though dad Jon was M.I.A., Kate's bodyguard, Steve Neild, was there. (The new Us Weekly reports the two have gotten closer than ever; see video.)

Kate, 35, recently blogged that she was in "awe" and "amazement" as all her kids headed to school fulltime.

Said the famous mom, "Reaching this milestone is a privilege."
