This year, Christmas has been pretty much dumbed down by all of the back to back sickness this whole December! First, Caleryn got sick from our cousins, then dad caught it then spread it to me and mom. Then because I got sick, I started having baclofen pump problems which causes a lot of complications and I have to go in and get a pump bump-up. As soon as we all started getting better, then Caleryn catches hand, foot and mouth disease from her pre-school. Which l got now! Anyway on Christmas Eve, my mom wanted to go ahead and unwrap the presents then but, my dad dissagreed. Of course it didn't really matter if he dissagreed because this Christmas my mom was the HoH (Head of Household) of the house. The items l got for this year is a Playstation 4, a humongous Playstation 3/Playstation 4 remote that works mainly on fighting games, two drum pedals and an iPad holder for the bed although, it was not really sturdy enough so my dad took it back to Fry's. Me and my dad also looked for some games there but there wasn't a big portion of games there. So we went Game Stop and bought four or five games. Also, l got a huge donation from Nana and Papa too. Anyway, all in all this Christmas has been okay even though we were all sick all December, which sucked.
The Christmas Story play was good. The only thing that I didn't like about it was all the singing, but Caleryn loved the singing and dancing. It was pretty true to the movie which was cool. There was this really nice lady who helped us get to our seats and she started talking to me a lot because she has trouble writing with her hands and even talking sometimes. She even told me and my mom all about this Botox she gets put into her neck to help her communicate better. Now I've had Botox in my legs when I was little but we had never heard of Botox in vocal chords. I wonder if it would help me out? Anyway she was super nice and she made our evening quite enjoyable! So Kay Mathews if you read this, this is my shout out to you...Hi! We then drove to a neighborhood known for their Christmas light displays and saw that, so we had a fun night!
For the past three years Lindsey has been my tutor and this Christmas she got tired of working and quit! Just joking, she's almost done with college but she has one semester left to cram a bunch of classes in before she graduates. I bet Boots will miss her because she would always feed Boots as soon as she got to our house, if my mom didn't feed him yet. I think I will miss her too, sometimes she would push me to study more. She would make me go outside more even though there's not much for me to do when Caleryn would go to the park. She would sometimes go on a field trip with me. Before she left on her trip to Dubai, my mom realized that we had never taken a picture of her so here is our one and only picture of Lindsey. Happy Trails!!!
I started a GoFundMe account so I can start the process in getting a Strike Force Power Chair. I have been playing power soccer for a year and a half now and l'm starting to really like it but my power chair now is slow, especially when I try to do a spin kick. This is why I want the chair, it has more power when the ball is hit because its so low to the ground and its faster too. I am also trying to get a sport grant to help with partial pay but I won't know if it was accepted until April. This chair is a lot of money at $8500! It will allow me to actually compete against the other teams. Our team is starting to get recognized around town in fact, our whole team was on the news a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, I made two goals that day and neither one of them made the news which kinda sucked. My dad is in the background trying to hog the spotlight, of course!
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.
