I like to say I’m a gypsy girl or a nomad, moving around from place to place, settling down for 3 years or even less, and never planting long term roots into a community.
Summer time is a very busy time in general for moving, however Memorial Day to Labor Day happens to be the busiest time of the year for the military to move families or PCS (permanent change of Station). Our rotation is in September, the end of September! You would know that we get the end of the summer, military houses for rent websites are empty, no military housing on base available, schools have already started, etc. It has to be the absolute worst time of the year to move. I normally move ahead with the girls in August, leaving David behind, so we can find a house, move in, and start school on the first day.
