Default Moving to Victoria, TX

My husband just recently got a job in Victoria, TX. He has 6 months to move within a 30-minute commute of the city. He will commute from our current home until our son finishes school & Spring baseball. I have always lived in the Central Texas region & have been at my current job in Austin for over 5 years now. I LOVE the people that I work with like my own family (who also lives close to me currently) & we are leaving it all for this job. I am O.K. with the move, but also very scared/nervous about it at the same time. I will have to find a job, we will have to find a pre-school & after-school care, we have to find a house to rent, AND we have to sell our current home. I've never had to sell a home before & dread that whole process. There also doesn't seem to be very many decent rental properties in the Victoria area. (Although we don't have to move for 6 months, I've kind-of been scoping out the rental properties.)

Coming from the Austin area, I'm NOT in love with the City of Victoria. The Austin area is AWESOME! And I'm going to GREATLY miss it & all of my friends. I know I will make new friends...blah, blah, blah. I am just so comfortable where I'm at & what I'm doing. We have a HUGE support system in both of our sets of parents & will be losing that.

Anyway....does anyone have any input on daycares/pre-schools/after-school programs in Victoria? Also, does anyone know of any decent rental properties on the North side of town w/ at least 3 bedrooms? We've been told that the good elementary schools are DeLeon, Chandler, & Vickers, so I'd like to be in those areas. All of you people that had posted a year or so ago that you were planning on moving to Victoria, please comment on your experiences so far. Also, what about churches? We are Lutheran. Which Lutheran churches are good & why?
