So, the Blog Cruise is starting up again, and this week's question had me in fits of hysterical laughter.
Do you follow a traditional school day/time/schedule/year?
They're kidding, right?
The short answer is no. But I suppose it is assumed I should expand on that.
Traditional School Day: Um, no. We tend to start school sometime before noon, and be at it until about the time Dale comes home at night. That would be 6:30ish. We break for lunch around 1:30, and various people have time off during the afternoon.
We eat dinner around 7:00. We spend time as a family. Nobody is ever in bed before about 10:00, often later.
So no, definitely nothing like a traditional school day.
Traditional School Year: Again, no. Officially, our school year starts January 1 and ends October 31. But we usually have some things that run on a traditional school year, so those continue. And we usually change gears during the summer. We may change this. I don't know.
Traditional School Schedule: Depending on what is meant by schedule -- we do follow a semi-normal scope and sequence in things like math and science. But we don't necessarily do it on a normal schedule.
I guess we're just nonconformists.
