2 days ago, l was eating breakfast and my braces were laying on the table. Of course Caleryn gets up on the table and messes with them. Then I had to focus on her. I was trying to protect my braces from the monster but my elbow hit the iPad holder (attached to my power chair) and my iPad fell onto the tiled floor and shattered! So I had to buy a new iPad. The one that I got was the iPad Air 2 which cost me1000 dollars! It has cellular data, has about 15 times more storage space than my old iPad and it has word prediction when I type! Hopefully this will allow me to type faster too! Also I bought a new cover for the new iPad so this sort of situation doesn't happen again. It looks cool too. The color is like the blue on the Dallas Cowboys. All I need now is a white star on the back of it. Anyway, my dad had to link all of my apps on the old iPad with his Mac to the new iPad. The good news is that it was able to start up when you pressed the home button. It was hard to get Clash of Clans linked to the new iPad but my dad did it though. Speaking of Clash of Clans, we are going to create our clan soon, because our clan right now, well...it sucks! Anyway, everything is back to normal. I have a new iPad with all of my apps on it. Blog on baby!
Yesterday l got my envsiline braces. The worst part of the whole thing is when the dentists put sour stuff on my teeth and it was so gross! It was a really quick visit since they took X-ray pictures of each tooth last time I went to get the molds. My mom says that it is better than regular braces because I don't have to go back every three weeks to get adjustments. Instead they give me 10 trays and I have to use a new tray every week. The first and second day have been the worst (pain wise) so far. My mom has to brush my teeth every time I eat now before I put them back on, good thing me and Caleryn got our teeth cleaned the day before. This way they will stay clean all the time! If you would've looked at my teeth with the braces on, you'll probably wouldn't notice it because the braces are clear. One good thing is that l only have to wear them for 18 months but, my mom said that it's probably more painful than wearing regular braces because I have to wear a new tray every week.
We played the professional soccer players from The Houston Dynamo and Dash Teams and here's what happened... our team kicked there butts badly! They only scored one point in all three games and for us l think we got 10 or 15 points in total! I am happy that l got to play the second game because my mom forgot the rails that makes the guard attach to the power chair. So my dad noticed the problem when he was fixin to put the guard on and after that, he had to go all the way home then back which l think it took a hour and a half total! Thank God there was no traffic! My dad made it before the first game. When l got to play, at first l was goally but for only three minutes. Then my coach switch me to the field. O yea while l was goally, l got a giant break away and my mom recorded it all. I almost got a goal because they played the song,"Wellcome to the Jungle" and l knew that it was my time to score a goal because it's an awesome song and pumped me up, Is that weird or what! This year was much better than last year because they had songs blaring and so many people showed up. Also, we have video of the last practice before last year's game. Khou local 2 news came by where we practice and asked my teammates a bunch of questions and of course my lazy father didn't want to go. This is why l can't wait till l drive.
Check out my break-away in the video section. Here is a link to the KHOU page averting the game.
I had the best year at camp blessing ever because l played Abe in chess for the talent show and l had the best counsiler and the best leaders too! I litteraly demolished Abe in chess. We didn't finish the game but l had like 12 points and he had 4 points. My counsiler's name was Jonas. He was a little funny when we met Kitty Perry (one of the girl counsilers there or a leader, l don't know). He would always whisper to me what to say to her and most of things that he whispered to me was mean. After l typed out the mean thought and showed it to her, she would always be a drama queen and then look away but l would get in front of her and then smile at her and she would smile back. I think Kitty knew that we were joking. O yea, l had a crush with her! (My mom said I was twitterpated!) Too bad she's too old. Raptor was one of the leaders l think for our cabin 7a and Logan (my old helper buddy) was a leader too. Raptor should've been in the movie, "Jurassic World". Plus, he looks kinda like Cris Pratt and his name is Raptor also! My mom forgot to tell Jonas that l had the tendon lengthening surgery to make my legs stronger but, o well it dosen't matter now. Anyway, the leaders and counsilers all made this summer camp 2015 THE BEST so far!! More to come.... Also, any of you counsilers leaders or Kitty want to talk to me, email me at email@example.com
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.
