Get Excited for School Challenge Day 2: Set a Schedule

Posted by   + Show Post

Summer means a whole new schedule. Kids go to bed later, can sleep in and it can be different every day. Get your kids to bed early tonight and start to get them back on a school sleeping schedule. How much does your summer routine vary from the school year? 


Do you try to get your kids back on a school timetable before the first day?

Well the summer schedule is massively different from school schedule...

I've been trying to get the kids on a normal routine/schedule for 2 Weeks now... However, I work 3 pm to 1130, so my grandma and Mom don't help me out much when it comes to my schedule...

I'm sticking to it though, school starts the 9th

Our summer routine doesn't really vary as far as bed time.. They are in bed by 9 every night.. We start getting ready after dinner..We bath, brush teeth, pick up toys in rooms, read a book, and go to bed:)

This will be my son's first year of school. And we have never really had a strict schedule with him, but we need to do so to get him ready for school. I wish I knew what time the bus would be picking him up so I know what time to wake him up in the mornings.

We are hading out for vacation soon, so the bedtime routine goes back on absolute schedule right afetr vacation! That will mean we have 3.5 weeks before school starts to whip back into our routine! Not that we veer too much of course.. Ds goes to bed at 9 during the summer.. And 8:30 during school. Lol! Whew!

we always have an 8pm bedtime Ds1 starts kindergarten so i think we will continue with the 8pm unless he seems overly sleepy in the mornings.
