Sun Prairie quintuplets headed for kindergarten

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) — It just got a whole lot quieter at one household in Sun Prairie on this back-to-school day.

While children across the state are heading back to class for the new school year, Frank and Cassie Vanderwall are sending their quintuplets off to kindergarten.

The quintuplets' parents say the key to controlled chaos is preparation and practice. Kali, Theo, Ellie, Lily and Bella picked out their clothes for school Monday night and each has a kid-friendly task before school Tuesday. One child fills glasses of water while another sets the table.

They also did a practice run in order to be prepared for Tuesday and a 6 a.m. wakeup.

The quintuplets' mom tells WKOW-TV it's also important to be flexible and remain calm.
