    ACK! Moving to San Diego...kids, schools, housing??

    Advertisements
    Hi! We're moving to San Diego in a few weeks from Tampa, FL. I'm new on here and am hoping to meet some other wives who are in the area with kids.

    We are moving on base and I have no idea what the housing is like there. If anybody has any info on the Miramar Milcon houses I'd really appreciate it.

    Also, we have 3 kids- 9,7, and 2...would love to find some kids for them to play with over the summer and maybe some other moms to talk to.

    Seems like everyone likes it out there...we are pretty excited!

    Well, we should be out there around June 22/23. How old are your boys? Do they go to school yet?

    Yay, welcome. I am So Cal, but a little further north. My boys are 3 1/2 and 6. Let us know when you get here, some of the moms have already gotten together.

    my boys are 4 years old and almost 2 years old (next month).
    My older son goes to a private preschool.

    1greenmom- looking forward to meeting you once your school is out for the summer.

    thinking of starting kinda like a "moms club" for meetups one every week or every other week- who would be interested?

    Most base housing isn't really on base but more like neighborhoods designated for military. MCAS Miramar has housing on base. North Island has limited housing and I am pretty sure it's for higher ranking officers...

    Do you know what base/command your dh will be attached to? My dh is based on a ship at San Diego Naval Base aka 32nd Street. There is also NAB Coronado, NAS North Island, NAF Imperial Beach and Point Loma... I think that is all of the navy bases other than the San Diego Naval Medical Center, aka Balboa and Miramar is a Marine base. Oh there is also MCRD, the Marine bootcamp and then Camp Pendleton Marine Base way up in north county. I don't know all the housing areas, just Murphy Canyon, Chesterton, Eucalyptus Ridge out east and one in Santee that I don't remember the name of.

    I am not in housing, we rent a home in Chula Vista which is south county and I have two boys 11 and 12 almost 13 complete with attitude.
