re: OT Parents - Suggestions with private school decision - 9th life
Southside. Altamont doesn't start until 5th grade, which we may or may not send them there that early (my wife and I have differing opinions on that). We currently have them at a school downtown, the school we may move them to is in Mountain Brook. ...

re: OT Parents - Suggestions with private school decision - 9th life
In New Orleans terms, it would be like living in Mid-City and choosing between Jesuit and Newman. My current commute to drop the kids off is between 5-7 minutes, the new commute would be 25-30 minutes. ...

[quote]What exactly is your problem at this point? [/quote] Indecision, I suppose. I want to make sure I make the right choice. I am annoyed that the school initially withheld his contract, and that withholding a contract for a 4 year old is even on the table. Wasn't sure if that was a reasona...

[quote]Have you asked them? Would a move be traumatic?[/quote] They went for their trial day today at the new school. Prior to that, they were both pretty opposed to the idea of a new school. They both really liked it, but it was also essentially a play day for them. I wont deny that a lot...

OT Parents - Suggestions with private school decision - 9th life
I will try to be as succinct as possible. I have 2 children, 4 & 6 that attend a private school here in Birmingham. The youngest is in 4k program and has had a difficult time adjusting to the structure, but I wouldn't say he is a behavioral problem. His older brother was much worse in the same cl...

re: Best NO hotels - 9th life
Ritz, windsor court or roosevelt. Ritz has the nicer rooms, but getting your car is the biggest pain of the three. Windsor court has the nicest lobby, the hotel bar us a little too stuffy for mytaste, but it is secluded and private. Roosevelt is my current favorite. Valet is quicker than ...

re: If you had to choose: Charlotte vs Birmingham vs Nola - 9th life
Nobody said it was a mecca for dining, but rather that there are "tons of good restaurants." You compiled a fine little list of them right in your post. You did omit El Barrio which I would feel comfortable taking anyone from anywhere there knowing they would be impressed. Yes, the suburbs of Bi...

re: If you had to choose: Charlotte vs Birmingham vs Nola - 9th life
I posted that by mistake. I do not care for Charlotte, but I see why some would. It just isn't for me. I moved from New Orleans to Birmingham, although if it had not been for kids I am not certain that we would have moved at all. That said we could easily move back to New Orleans, buy a house...

re: Basketball: LSU 70, Florida 63 | Final | TIGERS WIN!!!!! - 9th life
Lack of discipline and an inability to produce in a half court offense. We cant generate offense so we end up chucking threes or playing 1 on 5. We just need to run all game and force up tempo, even with our second unit. ...
