Academy Weekender

this was a long time coming–it’s a yearly tradition (well so far) for each cohort to go on a weekend-long trip together, and we finally made it possible. these are 29 (but missing 10) of the most innovative™, disruptive™, and fun (but dysfunctional) family i’ve had the greatest luck of having and they make my…
