‘OutDaughtered’: Adam Busby Just Showed How Excited the Quintuplets Were After Their First Day of School
A new school year has begun, and that means Adam and Danielle Busby’s six children that fans know and love from TLC’s OutDaughtered are going to school, too. The Busby quints are just 4 years old, and Adam and Danielle’s older daughter, Blayke, is now 8. And over the years, we’ve watched all of the kids grow up to develop their own unique personalities and traits that are ultra fun to watch on the small screen.
After a few Instagram posts about the Busby kids going to school, fans had questions about how it all went down. And Adam created a vlog to document their entire experience. Here’s what he recorded.
All the quintuplets entered pre-K except for one
OutDaughtered fans saw the quintuplets get their intelligence evaluated by a local preschool on one episode of the show. And while all of the girls did well on the test, it was Riley whose scores were above and beyond. The average test score for a preschooler was 40 — and Riley achieved an 84. For that reason, Adam and Danielle decided to separate her from her sisters and put her into kindergarten while the rest of the quints attended pre-K.
“First day of school! Blayke 3rd grade. Riley kindergarten. Ava, Olivia, Hazel, and Parker upper rotation Pre-K. Let your light shine bright girls!” the couple captioned this post. And Adam and Danielle also made separate posts about Riley’s big step forward. “First day of kindergarten in the books and she CRUSHED it! So incredibly proud of this little kid. When she wants something, there is nothing going to stand in her way and she is right at home forging her own path,” Adam captioned this one showing Riley sleeping after her first day.
The Busby kids seemed nervous going to school
Fans saw a few Instagram posts about the kids’ first day of school, but Adam just released a vlog showing the night before and the day of school, too. And while all of the quintuplets each have their own personality traits, there was one commonality between them — and that’s that they all appeared to be quite nervous to go to school.
In the video, none of the quints smiled while Adam attempted to get their photo taken just before they entered their classrooms. “Maybe we’ll do one after school,” Danielle laughed in the background as the attempts continued. And Parker looked particularly uneasy to go to school, which makes sense, as she’s known for being the shyest of the bunch.
Even Blayke, the oldest Busby daughter, appeared somewhat nervous to be entering the third grade. She had concerns that her friends from the year prior wouldn’t be in the same class as her, but Danielle and Adam reassured that she’d still see them during recess.
Adam said they all came home excited to talk about their day
After all the girls came home from school, their moods shifted dramatically from the morning. Adam picked them all up, and the quints were chattering nonstop while being driven home. “We had so much fun at school,” Riley commented to Adam. And when they all got home, the kids all started talking about their new best friends in their classes, too.
“All in all, I think today was a really good day for the girls — I mean, they went to school, there was no major meltdowns, there was no disasters with Blayke or whatever and not being in a class with her friends,” Adam said at the end of his vlog. “And the quints, I mean, yeah they were a little cranky this morning and didn’t want to smile for a picture or anything like that, but by the time that I picked them up from school, I mean, they were just telling stories and talking about their day and everything that they did.”
As for the future, Adam noted that Riley was doing even better than expected in the kindergarten class, so we’ll have to wait and see where that takes the pint-sized quint in the future. We’ll have to see what else happens with the family on the upcoming season of the show!
