Moving up, moving down...

Moving all around. :p Since the boys started gymnastics at the end of August, it seems they've been doing quite a bit of moving around between classes. Tyler started in the 5-10 year old beginner's class, then got offered to move up to level 4 the end of October. Bryan has been in the preschool 4 class, and just today his teacher approached me and told me she thought he's more than ready to move up to the 5-10 year old beginner's class (even though he's only 4.5). At the same time, Tyler's been having a rough time with level 4, and decided he didn't want to do gymnastics at all anymore. Is your head spinning yet? Mine was today... :p We all talked about all of our options this afternoon, and now we're looking at Bryan going to the 5-10 year old beginner's class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Tyler going back into his "old" 5-10 year old class on Thursdays. So Tyler and Bryan are actually going to be in the same class on Thursdays. That should be interesting. We'll see how it works out for them.

The other "moving around" we're doing is thinking about where to go after graduation in May. Things keep popping up here and there for Dave to apply to, and I'm getting dizzy thinking about all the different places we could end up going. And the daunting task of trying to find good neighborhoods, schools, comparing cost of living, etc. etc. etc. There is one possible option that would allow us to stay right where we are (though we'd definitely move out of the apartment and into a house!). Part of me is really hoping that option is going to work out, since I feel so comfortable here. I know the town, everything is close by, it's a good place to raise a family. Of course, we won't know until at least January if this option is going to work out, and so we're trying to decide what to do in the meantime. Keep applying other places? Wait until January and then apply as needed? I don't know. All I know is this is all getting a bit more complicated than I was hoping it would get... I guess moving on from one part of life to the next is never just easy.

We're excited to find our where you guys end up. Oh, and the best part about having a baby is he can't eat chocolate yet, so I never feel guilty eating all of it myself...

Here's a helpful hint for you - Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas have the lowest cost-of-living in the country. And I could make some good neighborhood/school recommendations in the Houston area, too...
