I am very impressed with your blog and each article I read. The articles provide visual representations (and several if needed, all with great quality photos), as well as very comprehendible points outlined. I also feel that these points are valid and things I have personally been searching for online, only to find a few vague and confusing references. When I read your posts, it makes perfect sense. I am actually a college/univ. graduate from 2010 (honors of bachelor degree in music education, K-12) and began teaching straight out of college. I was already married, and my husband and I knew that my disability (been with me from the age of 15) was beginning to come on stronger than ever, which would provide more difficulty for trying to have a family. We prayed and prayed. After a month of praying, we decided it was time to try having a family. Fast forward to today, and I will tell you that I didn't waste my degree, but I am simply using it different than I once thought - I am homeschooling my twin 5 1/2 yr. old boys, and we all have loved every minute of it (well, ALMOST every minute.... ;) ). I say that to tell you just how rare it is to find great, reputable information out there and it be so organized as well. I even trust my young children with looking through your site (with my guidance, of course). For storage of these rocks/minerals/gems, we've def. been experimenting. The most recent success I have had was using the 2-sided, clear pocketed jewelry hanging organizing case. Some models have a zipper that runs across each entire row of pockets for added security, which I loved. They are fairly affordable when you look in the right places. Our collection is now outgrowing our 4 jewelry organizers, so we moved on to something we could use to organize the rocks inside our Tupperware 3-drawer set. So we are currently transitioning to using drawer / eating utensil organizers (from thrift stores & final clearance) that stack and will put them in Tupperware drawers. I will line the drawer organizers with felt before placing in the rocks, but that is about it. Pretty simple and cheap. Just thought I'd share. I know there are probably many better ways to do this on a dirt-cheap budget, but I haven't figured them out, yet. I can't wait to get some free time and check out more of your blog, which helps me learn and be equipped to teach my kids. Thank you again for this great resource!
