Ben was telling me tonight that "all" (yeah, right) his friends get to stay up until 10 during the summer and wanted to know why I won't let him. I assured him that "all" of them don't, and then gave him good reasons why (to which he agreed).
So, do your kids have a different bedtime during either summer or whenever your break falls during the year?
It doesn't change. We do scriptures at 8, bedtime at 9 year round. However, just because they are in bed does not mean they must go immediately to sleep. We have no requirement for actually going to sleep.

During the school year the kids are in bed by 8-8:30 at the latest. But that's not because they have a bedtime, that just happens to be the time they are ready to pass out, lol.
During the summer some nights are later, some earlier. Tonight they all were in bed by 9, we had a long couple of days though. Some nights they don't get off to bed until 11 or later. It depends on what's going on, or what they're doing.
During the school year my kids were in bed at 8pm. For summer I changed their bedtime until 9pm. However it really has been more like 10pm with our back to back vacations....we're way off schedule. Hoping to move it closer to nine this week.
