My dh is taking a job in Southport starting in June so we will be moving to the area very soon!<br><br>
I grew up in Roxboro, NC so it's great to be moving back to NC! However I don't know much about Southport. My impression is I'll want to go to Wilmington for lots of things. If there are any mamas down there- give me the dirt! I know Wilmington has LLL, how about Brunswick County? A FNL group? Co-ops, health food stores, "crunchy places", homeschooling groups, cool preschools, (contradiction, I know- we're keeping our options open <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> ), AP-friendly playgroups?? Anything! Oh, and any awesome peds would be great, too!

I have a friend who just moved to Wilmington and they do have a LLL there but that's about all I know.. I recommend going to the LLL website and searching.. Also try <a href="http://www.wilmingtonmommies.com" target="_blank">www.wilmingtonmommies.com</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> She just joined that and has made a ton of new friends!

I just moved to Leland, in between Southport and Wilmington. I think Southport is great, I like this part of the country. We came from Bozeman, MT, so it's quite a culture shock.

We made it. Still unpacking, but I think I'm ready to start getting into stuff. We're renting a place on Oak Island at least until our old house sells, which will hopefully be in the next couple months. One can hope!<br><br>
I bookmarked the Wilmington Mommies page, I'll have to check them out. I'm wondering if there's anything in the county. I'll already be going to Wilmington for LLL, at least for a little while, so if there's not something here, we might have to change that.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Don't want to drive to Wilmington for everything.<br><br>
If anyone wants to come play with us at the beach, let me know. We're about a 15-20minute walk from the ocean or a very short drive!

Hey Kelly! I was browsing the NC forum and found your post! We moved back to NC last October and we are getting ready to build a new house here. We are in the Triad area of NC though so about 4 hours from you. Oak Island/ Southport are great areas! I hope you and your family are doing well!
