I seriously need some help as I don't know the area well at all. My hubbie and I are looking to relocate to the area this summer we have two kids age 5 and 9 months. The things that are most important to us about the area we move to is it has to have good schools for our kids prefferably on the smaller side, it has to be close to a college I am trying to finish and get my RN. Another thing is we are looking to buy a home but we don't have a huge budget for it either 100,000 at most. We also don't want to live to close to Dallas or Fort Worth maybe an hour commute at most if possible. I like more of the hometown feel but still have all the ammenities. We are looking at the suburbs of Dallas and Fort Worth so any info or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hill College in Hillsboro and Weatherford College in Weatherford both have good RN programs and are about an hour's drive. You should be able to find a house there in your price range. I would honestly recommend renting since when you get your RN, you will probably want to live closer to the city since that is where the RN jobs are!
