I am a southerner through and through. I lived in the south my entire life and then came to the northeast practically in my wedding dress almost 8 years ago. Needless to say when the opportunity came about for our growing family to make our way back down south- we jumped at it! I love and miss the incredible food, the generous-spirited people, the warm hospitality, and the fact that just about everyone reveres our wonderful Lord and raises their children to do the same, and the list just goes on and on. I am excited but nervous all at the same time, as I am dreading being the "new girl" all over again. We are trying to sell our house here, find a house there, a new church home, a college for my oldest, a kindergarten for my 5 year old, a preschool for my three year old, a pediatrician for all of them and an ob/gyn for myself as the newest family member is due around the end of August! I am feeling a little overwhelmed these days but I am just trying to "keep the faith" as folks say. Does anyone know anything about Texas? We are moving to the Dallas area. I've only visited there and it seems wonderful. I would be so grateful for any tips, ideas, suggestions or just any information you can send my way about moving in general with a family this size. Big Daddy thinks it would be "fun" to drive from the NY area all the way to Texas in an SUV with three little kids and a very pregnant wife. I just love how adventurous he is, but I have to say, that would probably send me over the edge! I would also be grateful for any prayers you could send our way as well!
