Military Families and Moving

familyactivities.co Most of you know that military families move a lot, as well as you know that Hubs and I have lived in 4 states in 5 years.  We have been in Montana a whole 10 months now :)  I hope that it is at least 3 more years before we move again...awe wishful thinking.  That is a lot of moving, and boxes, and packing paper, and a lot of choices as to where we will live.  We have lived off post, sometimes by choice and sometimes because the wait list was extremely long for on-post Continue reading
