Yes, we PCSed here to California in January, but don't worry, we are not PCSing again already. We are currently living in base housing and have decided to buy a house!!!! We are moving off base to another area, which will unfortunately mean the kids will be changing schools again, which I hate and I feel guilty about it. However I know it will be better in the long run!
The schools in the district we are moving to are MUCH better than the school they are at right now on base. Also, Sissy is in 6 grade and after we move she will be going to a Middle School which I feel will be really good for her and give her a little more since of independence and maturity!
So, that means right now, for the next month-ish (however much longer before we move) is the very last time my children will both be at the same school ever again!! Kinda crazy!
The base Elementary School they are both currently at goes up to 8th grade which I think is a little weird. I was in Elementary to 6th grade then Middle School was 7th and 8th. I like the idea of Middle School starting at 6th instead, but I couldn't imagine having Sissy stay as the current school through 8th grade then going to High School. She does currently have the same schedule setup of 7 different periods/classes throughout the day like Middle School which is good, but I think the older kids (6th, 7th, 8th) need that separation from Elementary of Middle School as a stepping stone to prepare them for High School.
I don't yet know when we are moving, it takes time, and lots of paperwork, to buy a house. I am hoping we move around the end of the month or the beginning of next! I really want to be unpacked and have time to decorate for Halloween!!!!
