My name is Stephanie. I have been a help meet to Scott for 18 years. We have 6 children and baby #7 will be arriving at the end of the summer. My children's ages are 15 (boy), 11 (girl), 10 (boy), 8 (girl), 4 (girl) and 1 (girl). "Arrow" number seven is a boy. We are a homeschooling family. Yes, it is a tough job somedays but I wouldn't have it any other way, really. I love homeschooling and being a stay at home mom and I know it is best for my family. I think it is so important for moms to be the primary nurturers and caregivers for their children. Sometimes with so many children at such varying ages our home somewhat resembles a zoo. It can get pretty wild! But we have a lot of fun and enjoy simply being with each other. These years when our children are home with us go by so quickly. Ask me how I know. I will have a son old enough to drive soon! Yikes! It seems like yesterday he was in diapers. I want to spend this precious time together as a family, growing together, learning together, playing together, praying together and building relationships that will last a lifetime.
