Thanks for responding! You stated that you work in KCK. How
far is that commute? I hate driving with a passion! Also, what
is the name of the school district in KCK? Thanks so much for
responding. I am having a hard time making the decision to
move. My husband will only be there for a year. But he is in
Kuwait now and I haven't seen him in year so that makes it even
harder. But to start a job for one year only to have to start
over again the next year is a bit much.
