Are you a homeschooling family? Compliance with the law in Florida is very easy. Once a year you need to have your child's progress assessed, and you can choose how to do that. We just had a former public school teacher fill out a one page form (she was a member of our homeschool group). You can also do a standardized test, or have a portfolio reviewed. I know there's been some flap recently about homeschooling being made illegal in California, but I haven't kept up with...

Also, living in Pensacola is about as 'typical Florida' as Sacramento is 'typical California'. The gulf coast is very nice for living, in my opinion, and Sacramento...not to put it down, but if you're in Sacramento you might as well be in any other economically depressed medium-to-large city in the west that isn't anywhere near a beach or the mountains.
I'll probably end up in the minority on this one but I'd pick Pensacola in a heartbeat. I've lived in Tallahassee before for many years, and I lived in Monterey CA for a few years. Both are within a couple hours of the cities you're considering and I've visited both Pensacola and Sacramento a half dozen times or so each. We take our vacation every year at St. George Island, which is a Florida Gulf island, and I'd live there full time if I could afford it, hurricane risk...

As the parent of a teen, I respectfully disagree with you.
We have leftover rice for breakfast a lot. Heat on the stovetop with milk, honey or maple syrup, you can put in some dried or fresh fruit too. You can make a lot of rice the first day and then eat it for several days after that.
I've been thinking about this and wondering why YOUR insurance is involved at all, since you weren't even in a car? You were a pedestrian, right? It seems to me like the driver's auto insurance ought to be paying for everything. I just want to really urge you to consult an attorney.
That seriously sucks. I would be livid too. Do you have an attorney? I was in a pretty bad accident almost 6 years ago, and I didn't think about hiring an attorney until insurance companies started d!ck!ng around with paying out treatment costs that were necessary.
(hug) sweetie. You will get through this.

I guess I should have said, what usually happens with leftover rice around here is that it becomes breakfast. I just heat it up in a pan with some milk and a little honey or sugar or maple syrup and the kids and I eat it with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or, we heat it up at lunchtime with some frozen veggies and a little butter or...
