We are extremely excited to finally be here! The last two weeks have been busy busy busy! We officially arrived to St. Louis on May 2nd. Wow! I can't believe it has been 10 days already. It is not a shocker that the entire moving process went in the complete opposite direction of all of our plans! That would be just too easy! Obviously it all worked out no major issues thank God!
We scheduled numerous meetings, we toured many homes and condos but none felt like home. One or two had potential but would have a terrible deal breaker. I am not one to rush if it is not needed and can be avoided. We changed our plan and found a two bedroom spacious Loft. The unit is not available until the end of the week so we are staying at an extended stay until it is ready. I can't wait to move in and start decorating!
This was unsuccessful but I know if opportunities become available I'll be able to dive in. Most of the transfers are requested a year in advance. They did offer options but I was not willing to wait another six months with no guarantee of being a transferred.
In the state of Missouri students must be 5 years of age before August 1st to attend Kindergarten. This was a bummer, in the state of Florida my Mani would have been eligible so we had to go on a hunt immediately. We submitted an application to a private school that offers Kindergarten for students with late birthdays last week. We are scheduled to have a parent and student interview this week. The school is fairly new but has a great reputation and academic program. Praying on it!
