Rock Tumbling Status Update

Alex received a rock tumbler for her birthday from Grams and Gramps.  While I knew it would be a great present, I didn't have any clue at how LONG it takes to completely 'tumble and polish' rocks.  It's a 21 day process!!  We're two weeks in now, and at our third water change (you rinse the rocks and pour in another packet of grit every week or so).  We're starting to see some awesome results-- most of these rocks were gathered on the North Shore (and a couple were in the rock tumbling kit).

 A massive agate!
