Moving to a new town is hard for most people. It is even harder when those people are teens who have to start a new school in the middle of the year. That is what happened with our two kids when my husband was transferred with barely any warning. We had considered keeping our house and having him commute, but it was just too far. Instead, we looked at apartments for rent in Shawnee KS, and we let the girls be an integral part in finding the next place we would call home.
We knew that it would go a bit easier on them if they really liked our new home. We were not going to buy a house or even rent one because we knew that this could happen again, and it just made better sense to rent an apartment until we knew what was going to happen with my husband’s job. Having the girls help us find our new home turned out to be the best decision we could have made. They found a gorgeous townhome that has a lot of wonderful amenities in it, and both were actually excited about going there to see it in person.
We made a weekend of it, and we all knew that this was going to be a fun and nice place to settle into. The last thing I had to do was look at the school district because their education is very important to us. We wanted them to be in a good school so, and the school they go to now is exactly that. They are actually getting better grades here, plus they love living at Shawnee Station. They have met so many new friends, and they fit right in. Their happiness is so important to us, so I am really glad that this move to our new apartment has been a good one for them.
