Nope, we're actually moving back there so I can finish school at Old Dominion. I wanted to live close to campus but man, talk about crime! Good luck with your house hunt! We should cloth diaper together some time!

As for where to live, I have 1 major tip. Stay on that side of the bridge. Bridge traffic is insane and it's routinely over an hour to get over it. Even if you end up closer to Oceana, your commute to the Norfolk base will be shorter 90% of the time. We lived over by Mt. Trashmore and it was a decent area.
We'll still be there when you get there!! We're hoping to stay there the rest of my husband's career! Thanks for the housing tip! We're really hoping to find a house in Cheaspeake! I found the babywearers group! SO excited about finding that group!!

We're in Portsmouth too. There are good areas, and it's more affordable than VB, Norfolk, or Chesapeake.
Hilary!
