It's all in the phrasing

Homeschool Log Day #3: 1.5 hours; constructed habitat for amphibious native life; studied geological structure and climate; biology discussion of breathing apparatus of various life forms; sensory exploration of natural environment.

Mothering Log Day #2,211: 1.5 hours; time to fold laundry and sweep floor. Children happily playing with toads in a bucket. We had fun talking about how God created them to breathe, how unique their skin is, and what type of house they like to live in. I had quite a time preventing the children from bringing certain aspects (i.e. mud and slime) of toad habitat into our habitat when they finally tired of their rainy morning escapades outdoors!
