Moving?

I am moving again and am wondering if you moved when you were a child? (My GKs live with me.) Did you move a lot? Was moving a good experience or bad experience? Tell us about your experience.

I moved once as a child, that's it.

My kids, on the other hand, are old pros at moving in their young age. My son has moved with us 7 times (he's 12) & my daughter has moved 4 times (she's 6). My son is very outgoing so he has always adjusted well. He went to 3 different schools within the first 4 years of school.

Our biggest move was from Pa. to NC. That was a little difficult on my son because he had to leave his friends but luckily we moved next door to a boy that was his age so he made a friend the very first day.

We know that another move is in our future - withing another year, probably. Hopefully that will be the last one for a while but you never know.

I wish you the best on your move! Make it easy on yourself and contact the schools beforehand so that you will know what you need to enroll the kids.

When I was a kid, I always wanted to move. We never moved. My mom is still in the same house she moved into when she was preggers with me.

As a kid we moved alot. I think I went to 4 or 5 elementary schools up to 6 grade. Then my parents stayed put for the rest of my childhood. Then I married a man in the military. I became a pro at moving. Now I have been in the same house for 14 yrs. I never want to move out.

That was me, too. My dad always thought that it was a big deal just to drive to the mall --7 miles away. I always wanted to move so now I'm getting the chance to do so....I just wish someone else would pay for it & load and unload the moving truck! lol!

I've moved a lot. The hardest time was changing high schools.
We moved in 10th, 11th and 12th so I went to three schools and did poorly.
As an adult, I now know I was just passed thru to the next grade without any one teacher catching on I wasn't catching on.........I envy a teacher not knowing me the way they did my younger brother and sister. My senior year was my dads last transfer so my brother and sister were able to stay in the same schools.

A couple of you mentioned wishing you could have moved. I envy your roots!


hugs, train

DeBora I did 7 schools in 8 years, (similar area but not close enough to keep friends made, small towns) I hated it and made sure my kids didn't have to do the school move except from primary school to high school. Once or twice I dont' think would have been an issue but that many in almost the same about of years ..... friends were hard to come buy as a shy kid.

We moved states and I have since with my parents until I married stayed in the same house for 8yrs, then married same house for nearly 10yrs and now this house (still married) for 14yrs in feb. (similar area, shire (county?))

I love the fact that I can meet people I know walking down the street, but I also know that knowing people in a town can be a bad thing in everyone knows everyones business.

Moving is such a pain. I hate the packing part. I did pay someone to load and unload the moving truck for me the last big move. I hired day laborers each way and it was a whole lot easier on my peace of mind
