Jon and Kate Gosselin are putting aside their war of words — at least for the time being — for the sake of their kids.
The bickering couple came together on Thursday morning to send their darling 9-year-old twins, Cara and Mady, off for the first day of school.
Jon and Kate arrived in separate cars around 7 a.m. Thursday to the bus pickup point; a parking lot near the family’s home in Wernersville, PA.
The twins rode with their mom to the lot. When they saw their dad, they gave him a big hug before hopping on the bus.
As the girls boarded the bus Kate, wearing her trademark cap and oversized sunglasses, apologized to the other moms for all the paparazzi there.
In a move to help Kate out, the other moms asked the paps: “Want our picture too?” and added: “Can you go over somewhere else?”
Kate then boarded the bus for a few minutes to say a final goodbye to the girls.
Jon kept his distance from Kate, but said of his kids: “They’re all jazzed up about riding on the bus.” He added: “I’m happy too, because now I don’t have to drive them to school.”
While Mady and Cara start third grade Thursday, the sextuplets start junior kindergarten on Friday.
The sextuplets will be in junior kindergarten only three days a week this school year; next year, they’ll go five days a week.
The marriage meltdown between Jon and Kate has grown worse in the last week, with Kate calling the cops on Jon, and slamming him on Larry King Live and in People magazine entitled Kate Strikes Back. In the article, she compared Jon’s behavior to that of a 15-year-old.
On Thursday, when paps asked Kate about the People article, she remained silent.
As RadarOnline.com reported exclusively on August 13th, Jon and Kate’s divorce will be legally official by the end of September.
It’s not clear how their divorce will impact their reality show.
