We are in a similar situation. We lived in a condo in an area I would consider city/suburban for most of our lives. About a month ago we moved to a more rural area about an hour from our home town. The schools are much better and we have a huge lot. It is an adjustment though. There is no Target, Old Navy, or Whole Foods but those things are just a 30-40 minute drive.

I have joined a stay at home mom meetup group in the area to meet other people. So far so good. I have library story time or a toddler meetup 3 -4 days a week.

We moved into a fixer upper farm type house so that is the one thing I wish I could change. DH gets very stressed about all the projects we need to do and I hate that.

Good luck in whatever you decide. There is nothing wrong with trying it out for 5 years and deciding it is not for you.
