The next generation is where this gets even more interesting… There’s six of us cousins, five girls and one boy – are you seeing a pattern? In order of birth: Jack, Michelle, Jennifer, Christine, Sara, Morgan. And guess what, the pattern continues! We each have a 10 year twin also; Jack & Christine, Michelle & Sara, Jennifer & Morgan (well, these two throw a wrench in the equation – 9 years apart, BUT on the same day, so we’ll let that one slide). Crazy, right???
