Conjoined Twins at School

Tatiana and Krista Hogan are a pair of conjoined twins joined at the head. Because their brains are linked together, they may share a mind, according to some scientists. They certainly share some sensory information: Tatiana can see through Krista's eyes and Krista can see through one of Tatiana's eyes. But beyond being the source of scientific fascination, they're also little girls who are growing up. And they just started kindergarten:

“They love school,” says grandmother Louise McKay. The staff at the school have gone out of their way to make the girls comfortable, including setting aside a quiet room if they need a break and retrofitting a special toilet, she says. “They have a really nice team behind them, they’re helping us out trying to figure out ways of accommodating Tati and Krista so they’re comfortable at school.”

The girls have certainly caused a stir. One girl, especially, followed them around the first few hours, clearly curious. They quickly formed a friendship. “Every morning she waits for Tati and Krista to get there, and takes them over to play finger puppets,” says McKay. “They’re laughing and giggling."
