We just sold our house, and the plan was to move into another house or apartment in the same school district. Our sons are 16 and 10. So anyway, my husband tells me his brother is willing to let us live in his home rent-free for the summer, or however long it takes us to find a suitable place. He lives in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Now, suddenly, my husband has decided that we will NOT be looking for a home in rural Wisconsin so our kids can continue at the same school, instead he wants to live in Minneapolis, which is an hour from where we are now. My oldest only has two years of high school left and is devastated. His grades are excellent and he flourishes at this school. My youngest has some cognitive and speech issues, and all the teachers there know him, he's known all his classmates since he was in pre-k. I feel he would be teased in a new school. My husband's argument for moving is that he has to drive to Minneapolis everyday for work and it would be easier if we just lived there. He has a company car, so there's no issues with a vehicle. He's done it for 11 years and now he doesn't want to drive anymore. I could also make more money there, but I can't help but worry about our sons. What in the world do I do? Move them to the city and a new school? Or stay here where their friends and great teachers are? I'm really desperate for help with this one.
