[IP] levels for bedtime

Ok..... my next question is..... (lol)

What is a good level to send Michelle to bed with.

Here are a few examples of what her levels are for a few days..
9.3, 13.8, 7.5, 5.2, 4.8, 6.6, 9.7 (next morning she woke at 8.9)
9.6, 9.6, 6.6, 6.2, 9.3, 6.3, 4.5, 9.9 (next morning 10.4)

168, 252, 135, 92, 87, 118, 173 (next morning she woke at 160)
172, 172, 118, 168, 119, 81, 178 (next morning 198)

She will consistently stay very close in the same range that she when to bed with. On those busy evenings, we always check her in the middle of the night and make sure she has an extra snack.

So what is a safe level to put her to bed with??????????????????? We have been trying to stick in the 7 - 8 range (126 - 144). Is this okay, can we try to go lower?????? I know everyone is different.

Michelle is homeschooled (I am her teacher) which makes life easier for her. So I do have an idea of the activity level during the day.
