How's that going for you? We were thinking of doing that next year for Beau but we are afraid that he'll miss out on the social aspect since all my friends with kids live very far away.

It's official, SO and I found a new place and are moving! I am so excited, finding a place that is in the area we wanted and big enough has been a bit of a challenge.



It's about 10 minutes from where we live now, still in the area we wanted (yay!!) it's 5 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, with a full, finished basement with fire escapes. Still in the same school district, which I love...it's not something that we can really negotiate on, because this school is...yeah.



We kind of know the landlord, which is nice, because he agreed to drop the pet deposit and the security deposit, as well as the first month's rent. I'm so excited. So. f**king. Excited.



They have to do some repairs on it from the last tenets, but then we should be able to move in!

I'm so happy for you!!! Send some of that new home luck my way! They pull our credit next month to pre-qual us for a house. We have 3 we already like, so whichever isn't sold by then we will put an offer in on.



Sounds like you got an awesome deal! What a blessing!

This is our first year doing it and it is going really well. My son is enrolled in a virtual academy. It is great because he has a teacher who sets all the lesson plans ( she also lives locally) and there are probably about 20 other kids in his class that "meet up" online 3 times a week for lessons and they chat and do activities together on the computer. they also have field trips every month so the kids can actually meet in person.. Sorry Im going on and on I am just in love with the program we picked for him. Hopefully where you move there will be some neighborhood kids for your son to play with.

Connections Academy. I would 100 % recommend it. Also, Calvert school is what we are putting my DD in next year since Connections doesnt do pre school.

I know what you mean. I am a little scared at the thought of home schooling a 1st grader and a preschooler while wrangling a 2 year old and taking care of the new baby. Thus the main reason I really need a good sling.

Susan: I'm 13wks. I took some stuff for constipation and man that was crazy... but I feel a little better. I think I was just really backed up. I was on antibiotics too and that sucked. I cry over NOTHING... and my b**bs are so itchy and "let down" feeling... crazy.. I haven't BFed my 3yo since she was 4months. No real cravings yet but I'm not surprised, I don't even really have an appetite yet.



Gender: I don't even have a scan ordered yet. No idea when I'll find out >_<



Elle: How lucky! Congrats on the upcoming move.



Slings: I had a ring sling and loved it too. I didn't use it for her as a newbie but I should have.
