We eat all over the house, the little ones usually eat at the table since they have a habit of spilling everything, but our kitchen isn't big enough for a table that fits everyone, which is usually ok cause not everyone is here at the same time.
We don't say grace and they can leave as soon as they are done.
We usually eat together. Well the ones that are here do.
No we don't say grace but everyone gets a turn to tell how their day went, time permitting
They can leave the table when they are finished eating

I have a formal dining room, but its carpeted, so not in daily use currently.
We tend to eat at the island-twins in highchairs, preschoolers on stools, dh and I standing to eat at the island, if he's home for supper. He's usually not home to eat with us 5/7 days of the week. I feed the kids at 4:30, then I usually eat with him at 6:30. Varies. We are just starting to say grace before meals, and the kids can leave when they're done eating.
Does your family eat meals together - as a family? Yes
Does your family say grace or a blessing before eating? No
Do the kids leave the table as they are finished or do you make them wait for everyone to be done? There's so much talking going on that even if a child is finished they usually stay for the conversation.
Does your family eat meals together - as a family? For dinner always.
Does your family say grace or a blessing before eating? no but we really should.
Do the kids leave the table as they are finished or do you make them wait for everyone to be done? lately we have had them stay at the table because the 3 yr old was thinking she could leave and then return to the table constantly while she ate. This seems to have helped nip that in the bud.
