We did. Pulled them out of one school about a week or so before break and then started in new school after break. It was madness! But quite the adventure :)

We moved at the end of Jan one year. My oldest was 14 and . Freshman, my dd was in 5th grade, my yyounger two were 1stand 2nd grade. We did it again two years later. They all did fine. We just had sone problemstransferring some of my oldest son's credits, but it all worked out. We are moving again this summer. My oldest is graduated, my dd will be between 10th and 11th grade, my son will be between 7th and 8th, my youbgest dd will be between 6th and 7th. My oldest dd not happy about this move.

We are moving to Norway in 5 weeks. I'm taking it one day at a time. I am getting rid of stuff now, and worrying about Christmas. We luckily won't pack out until mid-January, but I work full time until the 17th of January so it's still a bit stressful. Last PCS, we celebrate Christmas, then 2 days later packed out. It is fun for my kids, they still consider PCSing an adventure ;) 


Good luck! I hope things move smoothly for you!
