I have 2 girls.....5 and almost 10. Our bed time routine doesn't change that much in the summer than that of the school year. The girls are allowed to stay up 1/2 hour longer in the summer or during an extended break.
Katelyn the 5 year old must start her bedtime routine at 7:00 with lights out at 7:30 pm and Kimberlie the 10 year old starts her routine around 7:30 and is in bed by 8:00. On a school day or a summer "Mom has to work" day we get up at 6:45 and on the weekends they are allowed to sleep in to what ever time their bodies say to.
My children think I am mean, because all the other kids get to stay up as late as they want to.....

As Summer Vacation winds down and we get ready to send our kids back to school, we are reminded that it's time to start adjusting those schedules. We are going to start getting back into those necessary habits this week.
We all know that getting the kids (and ourselves) up early can be a struggle after a couple of months of late nights and sleeping in. It's time to set a new sleep schedule and put it into place this week. Earn 50 pts for creating a new sleep schedule for your school-age children and posting it. Earn 10 pts for succeeding at wake-up time or bedtime. Earn 25 pts for succeeding at both.
Many people dislike the lunch options that schools provide. This week we will start preparing healthier lunches for our kids that they could take to school. List it on your points tracker and earn 25 pts per day.
