Hello Everyone. A friend from my co-op preschool told me about this site, and that there is a large community here from the Oregon/Northwest Region. My name is Chris, mom to Ella who will be three next Wednesday. We are currently living in Dallas, Texas, but will soon be moving to Oregon so that I can go to law school. I need all the help and advice I can get about moving a family across the country, and having a healthy family life while going through the challenges of law school.

Several years ago, I moved the other way, from Portland, Oregon to Austin. I am originally from Southern Oregon and know the state well (and love it to bits). So maybe I can help.<br><br>
What are your concerns?

don't know if I have this right yet, I am new to the MDC. I just moved north of Dallas, was on my own with 1yr old for 3mo. before joining dh here. Somehow made it through, alot of it is a blur. I do remember my son and I spent alot of time in our PJ's. All lower cabinets were reserved for his toys, so I could hide them in a hurry! Just enjoy your family!! good luck!

thanks everyone! i am trying my hardest not to get too stressed out about moving. we are not going to move until july, but basically i have to fly up there and find a place to live in about a weeks time. its scary, but i am really excited. whether we move to salem, PDX or Eugene is still up in the air. Mostly, I am worried about not knowing that I am picking a bad neighborhood to live in, but having no eartly idea that i am doing it.

Welcome to MDC! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> from the Seattle area!<br><br>
For questions about moving and neighborhoods in PDX, etc. go under "Finding Your Tribe" and then post a question for neighborhood suggestions under the "Washington, Oregon and Idaho" forum. I'm sure you'll get lots of responses. Just be sure to put PDX in your title.<br><br>
Good luck with your big move.
