I have some big news to share with you today and to talk a little bit about some of the changes that you will see in the next few weeks and months. The first big news is that we are MOVING out to the San Francisco Bay Area. Mr. Fantastic has been working very hard for the past year on a work project that resulted on a big opportunity for him. It is really a project that he can't pass up at this time as it has been his goal for the last year or so. To say I am extremely proud of him would be a massive understatement.
That said, he hit the ground running (or in our case, flying) and has been commuting between California and Texas for the last month or so. While we will be moving our family out there, we are working to have as little disruption to the boys and their schooling as possible. Navigating the school system in California, particularly in San Francisco has been completely overwhelming. We can't even look for a house because San Francisco doesn't go based on a geographical location to assign schools. They have a lottery system and your address doesn't factor into the school determination. Then we thought we could get the school assigned and find a place nearby, but you can't even be entered into the lottery until you physically move, so now we are looking to simplify and move out to the bay area where we can pick the school and choose an area to live in based on the schools we want the kids to attend.
In Santa Cruz for lunch.
We took these photos earlier this morning as we were driving down the Pacific Coast Highway after a very early morning flight. We have three days here in California to narrow down where we will live and hopefully we will have some places to look at for my next visit next month.
I will post some more of our plans after the holiday, but I will probably be moving my blog in a new direction as well.
