While I was away at Camp Blessings and having a blast and Caleryn was at Nanna and papas, my mom was having knee replacement surgery and was in pain. Once me and Caleryn got home, it was time for my dad to be mom for a few days. It was kind of funny to see my dad do what she does everyday! My dad wanted to go back to his work after a day of being secondary mom. Pretty much all we are eating is processed junk foods and HungryMan TV dinners since my mom can't cook anything! Sometimes he'll get us a gourmet meal from Chick–Fill–A. #imissmymomscooking! My dad mainly was annoyed by all of the demands from Caleryn and my mom and Chewy. Chewy seems to go crazy every time Caleryn is around and she starts jumping on mom's hurt leg. I don't think my dad was annoyed by me as much as them. It is also funny to watch my mom having to do physical therapy for her knee! I might act like I'm Jillian Michals when she does therapy. Anyway I hope this surgery will make at least one of her knees not hurt so bad and walk better too.
This year for camp l had a blast! I was very honored to be in the coolest cabin of all, cabin 7b, and I had an awesome buddy named Eric too. The other councilors are: Camden, Dylan, Jacob, Jason and Kyle. But my favorites were: Dylan, Jacob, Jason, Eric, Logan, Jonas and Kitty Purry. The cabin leaders were Brick and Iz, which are pretty cool guys. Food wise, the food was pretty good but I probably should have brought my boosts from home because I wasn't eating to my full potential. Speaking of which, Dylan was eating like he was starving all his life! I soon nicknamed him as the Hogg. Maybe we'll be food friends. I think Jason liked me just because of my smile. One time when it was our cabin's turn to pray during the cross carry, I actually prayed out loud! Which l do not like doing at all! After the cabin was done praying, Jason then said that he was almost choked up when he heard me pray! Anyway for the talent show l danced to the song "Paradise City" with Kitty Purry and Eric. Afterwards, the whole cabin danced to "Free Birds". Now if I could talk, I would so do a little comic show or maybe a lip sync to a rock song. I like going to camp because it's kinda nice getting away from all of the commotion in the house. I also like seeing my friends and doing all the activities there.
On the Fourth of July, one of my friends from power soccer, Kirsten, invited me to a pool party. At 6pm my family got to her house and there was a lot of people there, including Steven and Alley. Some of the people there were excited that I was able to come. I couldn't go swimming because my mom and dad aren't comfortable with my new floaty yet. After Kirsten got out of the pool and dried off, she gave me tour of her house; next, she pulled out her laptop and gave me a glimpse of Minecraft. Im glad that she took the time to show me, it's actually pretty cool because you have to be really creative to build things. My dad has been watching videos on it to help me get started soon. Once I start playing Minecraft, l think I'm going to act like the 1988 spaceship guy on the Lego movie because he's constantly trying to build a spaceship but nobody lets him finish until the end of the movie. I digress. After we left her house, we went to find a spot to go see the fireworks in The Woodlands. The fireworks this year was really weak. It only lasted for about ten minutes and there was no grand finally either! I bet the people who parked closer to it were super mad because they had to sit in traffic forever. We later found out that the firemen had to call it off because it was way too windy and it could of been dangerous. They ctually had to stop the one on lake Conroe too because it was starting grass fires. Oh well, maybe next year will be better. Anyway over all the night was pretty cool!
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
