Traditional? Who, me?

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.

Click the graphic above to go see how my fellow crew-mates answered this question.  I suspect many are a lot more normal than we are...
