This year the Fireballs charity event wasn't fair for the Dynamo Dash at all. The biggest difference between our team and the Dynamo Dash is that we have five kids with Strike Force chairs and we practice every Saturday. On the other hand, the Dynamo Dash only plays power soccer when this event happens. Plus, the score was 15:0; it was almost too easy, they should really practice more! I did get a goal though before ten minutes was up. I didn't get to play that much because the coach wanted me to be goalie. I think I might of got in trouble for not using my peripheral vision. I think I might need a rear view mirror! Maybe next year it'll be more fair for the Dynamo/Dash players. Anyway, when I first started warming up, most of the Elders from Camp Blessings came up behind me like a bunch of ninjas and said hi to me. And then, just as l thought everyone that knows me was there, another ninja nicknamed Kitty Purry came to watch me play. The funny thing is that my mom and dad didn't recognize her because she dyed her hair brown! I was so surprised that they came! All in all the whole event was pretty cool. Especially when some of my friends from Camp Blessings took the time to come to watch me play. That was really nice of them to do that.
P.S I just thought of a new nickname for Jaycee Wright and it is Karen the Cougar from the movie Talladega Nights.
P.SS If you don't get that, it's okay. I'm just being a dork right now.

My sister has been gone at Nanna and Papa's house for a week to hang with our cousins. That way my mom could have a nice break from cleaning up all the destruction she causes in the house. The house was so calm and quiet for a whole week. The downside of Caleryn being away with Nanna and Papa is that I don't get as much food when she's gone, because whatever she doesn't eat after ten minutes goes into my belly, except for raisins and avacados. I was so excited when Caleryn came home. I wanted to hug her ten times but she's stingy with hugs. We were so excited to see her and glad that she's back but the house looked like a tornado hit it within 1 hr of her return! Hey, at least my stomach is getting fuller now.
The Guns and Roses concert at the NRG stadium was awesome! The stadium was packed, it had to be at least 80,000 people there. Me and my dad got there too early. My mom was supposed to go too but she can barely walk still, so we wasted a ticket. We had to wait for a hour and a half before they actually played! The reason we went to the concert is because Slash and the original band members was there. They played the songs pretty darn good, it almost sounded like it was on the radio. The only song that didn't really sound good is Paradise City. I think that they rushed it just to be done because it was the last song of the night. The concert was super loud, in fact once they played Sweet Child O' Mine the whole crowd just went crazy! There was a lot of old people there. The people there wore decent clothing and l didn't hear much cussing either, but of course we smelled beer and marajauna. It was 1am when we left the concert and surprisingly it didn't take really long to leave and we stayed to the end too! I was also suprised that my dad only yelled twice at people in the car when headed out. Two days later, me and my dad had allergies and I think it was from smelling marajauna at the concert. I don't know how people get addicted to that stuff. Anyway the concert was a once in a lifetime thing to see and it was pretty cool to see them in person and playing music.
Last week was my first power soccer practice in my new chair. I did okay on most of the drills we did, but l had trouble passing the ball to my partner while going backwards. Then we did a scrimmage and no, I did not score a goal but my teammate Kirsten did though. It was a pretty good goal too. I think my dad needs to make a couple of adjustments for the chair so I don't have to reach far to grab the joystick. Hopefully by the time our team plays against San Antonio, l will be used to the chair and have all of the adjustments corrected.
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.
