Hello world! I haven't posted to my blog in a while because I have been super busy with homework and skiing (and a little bit lazy) but I am going to try to post more often now. A few weekends ago, the Windells Academy took an industry trip to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in downtown Portland. It was a really cool experience. We got to see all kinds of exhibits and cool artifacts as well as a presentation on constellations in our solar system. Here are some cool photos from the trip.

Here is a link to the site as well

Grenade Trip downtown Portland

So last Wednesday it was raining up on the mountain and we couldnt ride so the Windells Academy decided to take a trip to Portland to visit Grenade! We left our house at about 9 a clock and took the freeway to downtown Portland where Grenade is located. We arrived and the general manager gave us a tour of the office!

After leaving Grenade with arms full of free stuff, we toured around downtown Portland to go to some cool places.

After Voodoo Donut, we walked down the boardwalk by the river.

We wrapped up the day with a night of poker! So far I am the reigning champ! Many more games to come this summer. See ya!

New Crib!!

Well..with summer camp about to start right around the corner here at Windells, the Academy has to move off campus! We no longer can reside on campus because campers will be staying in the cabins that we once resided in. Instead, we have rented a house 2 minutes down the road for summer. We still will be doing all of our regular activities like school and trampolining. The house is sick!! It is in the town of Brightwood and is very cozy and in an epic location. We are sharing it with our residential adviser, a coach, and the other academy kids. It is where we will be doing school also. The schedule is going to change up a little when the campers get here. We are going to be able to spend time with them and get mixed in with the on campus activities which will be sweet.

Here are some pics of the house. This summer is going to be awesome!!!
