Kansas City mamas!

We may be moving to KC for dh's job. He will be working in Lenexa. I was looking at Shawnee to rent in. The commute would be quick and the price is right. This would befor a year or two until we are ready to purchase a home outside of KC. 

Can anyone tell me if Shawnee is decent. I can live with a little crime, a little lower income.  But I do need to be safe. Is this an ok place to live with my family?

We lived in Overland Park, the school systems are great. The traffic is horrific and the taxes are high.

I had peeked at places in Overland Park. The rent seems rather high for joco. Shawnee is just north of Lenexa so I'm hoping dh won't even have to deal with the traffic. Once we buy a house I'm thinking of going south on the 69 and shooting for louisberg. Seems nice and rural but within 20 miles of dh's job. 

Do you know if Shawnee is moderately safe?  Are the schools decent?  I just need a quick apartment rental for anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on how quickly we find a home to buy. I live in south eastern Kansas, so we prefer to just move up quickly to save dh from a two hour commute. Also once I factor in gas and insurance, it would be less expensive to move up.
