In response to the recent healthcare concerns, obviously my schedule has changed.  Please see the Choice-Board below for GT activities to supplement what you're already doing.  Remember to have fun, and if anything gets too frustrating, step back and try to tackle again in a different way.  The great part is that your whole family can get involved!
