9:00. Lights out by 9:30. It ends up being later on Monday since he gets home late from scouts & takes a bit of time to wind down.

Between 7 and 7:30--her school starts at 8:15, and we only live about 5 minutes away.

Yeah we are like 2 mins from our school. Our school starts at 8 so Nathaniel can easily sleep till 7 and we can get there in time. I think he would die of exhaustion though if he didn't get to by no later than 8. Funny how kids are so different in their needs. He has always been a big sleeper, he took naps for years! So many of my friends said I was so lucky b/c he napped till he was 5 for about 2 hours a day.

It's true, kids can be very different! My daughter stopped napping when she was about 2 1/2 and has a lot of trouble falling asleep unless she's extremely tired--if she goes to bed early, she'll just lie awake for hours. I'm a night owl too, so I suspect there's some heredity at work there.
