When do you start the "return to school" routine?

We're going to start next Monday. DH goes back to work Monday, and we're going to follow the same routine. Up at 6. In bed by 8. I think this will give her a month of getting used to getting up and it's not such a shock to her when school starts back up.

We will start after vacation, about 3 weeks before school starts.

we homeschool, so getting up early isn't really a requirement for the kids.  i usually get up earlier during the school year, but the kids get up whenever.  if i had to wake up early and dress all the kids, i would lose my mind.  it takes me entirely too long to get going in the morning.

Ours did. We all slept in later, and stay up later. Lol. DH starts back to work next week though, so he's trying to get into the routine now.

DD will have a month before school starts.

I always started about 3 days before school starts - no sense starting so early, it doesn't take that long to get used to a change in routine.  And you're ruining a month of his summer vacation!

I really really need to start that routine this week. THey go back to school next Wednesday. I had them in bed by 9:30 last night but we slept in till 8. My dh is on 3rds now and doesn't leave till 10:30 and of course they want to stay up until he leaves.

this and shortly thereafter DD falls right back to routine naturally after a couple days. No biggie.
