Re: moving and making friends
Can you join a coop, sports team, or play group? I find (we are military so we move a lot) making friends is much easier at some sort of social kids group. I usually google the area and see if there is some sort of online social group also. It's a great place to post, "new to the area with a X year old son, looking to find friends", always a good place to start looking.
