One of the largest sets of multiples in West Central Ohio are now preparing for their senior year of high school. In 1995, Roger and Mary Scott went from having just one son to having a house full of kids.
Now the Scott quintuplets are preparing to enter their senior year of high school
Kathleen Scott, was the first to venture out on her own. She attends Apollo Career Center while the others remain at Shawnee High School.
"It was kinda different being away from everybody else," said Kathleen, also known as Baby A.
Soon, though, all of the Scott's will be parting ways. Graduation is just nine months away, and the kids plan on attending college. Some want to stay nearby.
"I'll miss my siblings, but I'll try to venture out," said Kiersten Scott, Baby C.
Others are ready to be away from their family members.
"I want to get as far away as possible from them," said Rory Scott, Baby D.
So what has the last 17 years been like for the family? Well, for the Scott family having four other brothers and sisters the same age is normal, but it is also loud.
"It's hectic. It can be pretty crazy sometimes, you know, everyone fighting a lot, but in the end we get along," said Molly Scott, Baby B.
For William-- the baby of the family--the best aspect of being a quint, can also be the worst.
"There's always someone there," said William, Baby E.
The kids might be ready for their senior year, but Mary Scott says having the quintuplets leave could be as big of an adjustment as bringing them home.
"It's another big u-turn. We'll survive," said Mary Scott, mother of the quints.
However, their dad is ready for some peace after all this time.
"I'm excited. It's going to be quiet. I'm more fearful of what it might cost when they go to college," said Roger Scott, father of the quints.
The next big milestone for the Scott quints is turning 18. They'll do that on December 12th of this year.
