P.S.I have great kids in case you are a daycare reading this.They are very well behaved and very well mannered.Good kids and I'm trying to keep them that way.If I stay here these people might rub off on them.I'm not saying Mi. is all bad just where I currently live and I also see Michigans economy getting worse.Jobs are scarce.

I live in Louisville and there are quite a few Home Depots in the area. I am not sure exactly what you are looking for but I hope you find it!

I certainly would look at Louisville Home Depots. You haven't said what age your children are, but there are some very good opportunities for working here and some fantastic child centers in the area. Great place to raise kids.

Morehead, KY has a home depot, and various other amenities, while still being a town of about 6,000 people. It's located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, so looks a lot like most parts of Michigan (it actually sits in the middle of the Daniel Boone National Forest). There are many outdoorsy things to do here and is about 1 hr driving distance to both Lexington, KY and Huntington, West Virginia if you want extensive shopping, or even an amusement park! Very small town living, with very cheap cost of living, but has a university in town to keep things a bit hoppin' even with the small population size. There are actually quite a few daycares in town and private babysitters in their homes. Daycare in that area for a child up to 3 y.o. runs from $75 to $90 a week, and the prices drop for older children. From what I paid in Michigan, that will be a huge blessing to you I bet!
Eastern Kentucky gets a bad rap, but if small town living, cheap cost of living, friendly people and lots-o-trees and green is what you're looking for, please check out Morehead!
Good luck to you!

Good for you! Good luck with everything! I am sorry I cannot offer any advice on childcare-don't have any of my own yet but your reasons for moving are so inspiring!
