Hi Janaki. Just a note to mention that the first Wolf Journey class of the academic year is tonight (tues) at 7:00 on the Fairhaven Village Green behind Village Books.

If you have any questions, please see http://www.wolfcamp.com/wolfjourney/classbham.html or call me at 425-248-0253. Thanks! Kim and I hope to see you there. - Chris Chisholm
