I had a super long weekend even though it was two days long. At 12:00pm I had a football game. We won 40-8. But next week is a different story as we are going against the other unseated team. They are all tall, fast, able to catch, and throw. We have some real hard games coming up. I scored 1 touchdown off an interception. After the football game I went to Universal with my friend and his family. When went there for his parents for a concert. I don’t recall the name but it wasn’t that interesting for me.[Mom note: It was Olivia Newton John!]
We went on the hulk which was pretty awesome. After we walked around we went on Journey to Atlantis. It is a tour guide thing about what happened to the Ancient Greeks with gods and wars. Sounds boring but it is fun. So he said “since I said my name say yours” so everyone did. But I said mine one second late on purpose. But I didn’t realize this was going to happen. His reaction was ok “Brendan we were just arrange buddy systems and can you be my partner?” Of course I said yes. So I was his partner and he kept saying my name on the tour/ride thing. He let me hold the Triton too. He was so cool. Then we went on transformers which was ok. Then we finally went to his house after and I slept over.
Sunday, my friend and I went to Rebounderz for my brother’s birthday party. Rebounderz is a bounce place and it comes with basketball and dodgeball. It wasn’t organized dodge ball. What I mean about that is that you have to create your own teams and rules. The basketball net was two nets and two trampolines side by side and it was made to dunk. But not play a game. They were also building 2 new bounce things. They were building an obstacle course and something that I don’t know I just know it wasn’t open yet. After everything we had pizza made from there. It was actually good. Finally we had mint chocolate chip ice cream.
After my brother’s birthday, I went back to the AAU basketball tryout and I think I did better than last time. We did the same things as last time and on the 5v5 scrimmage I got the ball and the defender that was blocking me for some reason backed off of me and I shot it and went in. I know people make points all the time but I’m not the greatest at basketball. I think I might make the team. So I am really excited.
Playing with Mira on the trampoline.
Recently, I went to an AAU basket balltry out sort of thing. I think I did really well. There is another try out Sunday. We did some dribbling drills, stretching, shooting, and defense. At the end we did 3-v-3 and my team beat all the teams. Then we did 5-v-5 and we lost. Some of my friends were there that I also play football with.
Also I had a football game Saturday. We won about 40-24. I scored three touchdowns. I also did a god job on defense. I went through everyone on on my touchdowns and one wasn’t even supposed to go to me. We went against a Lake Nona team so we are now 3-0. We are going against a team with a girl QB and she throws quick and fast and the people on her team are really tall so she throws it high up in the air.
This is my second video game blog. There has been new video games that have came out so I wanted to do another.
So for my favorite for xbox is Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. It is like any other Call of Duty but it has technology called exo suit. Exo suits make you jump higher, run faster, and you will not take fall damage. I think it is really fun. My second favorite is FIFA 15. It is soccer or otherwise futball. My third is probably NCAA basketball 10. It also is just like basketball but it is college.
For my iPad, my favorite is Clash of Clans. You build your own base and try to be the strongest. My second favorite is probably Madden Mobile. You build your own team and play football games with them. My third is Tapped out. It is a Simpsons game where you build Springfield. Those are my favorite games what are yours?
It was really fun going to Washington D.C. We did a tour around the White House on our first day. But we were only allowed in the east wing. We also saw Bo for a half a second (Barack Obama’s dog). We were all surprised and curious if we actually saw Bo. The rest of it was cool but it wasn’t the best. I learned that they put up about 20 Christmas trees in one room. After we walked to the mall and played on the fields for a while.
After playing we went to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. That was really cool. It shows you how they make money. I saw 100,000,000 dollars in $10 bills in a box. In total I saw about $100,000,000,000,000 dollars. The thing that I liked that I learned was the ways to see the tricks to see if the money was real.
Then we went on a tour of the Capitol. My favorite was seeing Bo for that day. After that day we didn’t walk as much.
We went to the spy museum and I learned what things you have to learn to be a spy. Like you code name. I liked a picture explaining that a pigeon got the Medal of Honor because it was carrying messages from base to base. Then it got hurt but still delivered a messenger then that helped us win a war. But I don’t remember which. We also went to the zoo and saw panda bears! We didn’t stay long because it was about to rain. But it was my first time seeing a panda bear. We also got to see a lion roar. We saw monkeys and elephants. The penguins were closed so we didn’t go there.
We saw the MSU football game with alumni group and we won against Purdue. We also went to the Air&Space museum. Which we saw the Discovery Space Shuttle. A lot of war planes. We even saw the space ship which the guy jumped out then landed back on earth. I saw and learned a bombing plane that dropped a nuclear bomb on Japan and only two nuclear bombs have been blown off.
The next day we went to the Arlington Cemetery. We saw the memorial for the hidden soldier. Also every hour they change their guard and we saw that. The cool thing is there is always someone out there even in storms. We saw all the other memorials to which was really cool. I like Abe the best cause you can run up the stairs and run back down and Abe is huge. After that day we went back home and did are home work that we missed over the 4 days of school we were gone. My favorite was the spy museum. The thingg I liked the most while learning was the engraving.

The only place close enough we were allowed to take a picture to prove we were in the White House.
FDR and Brendan.
I have started playing soccer for my school. I was really bad when I started then I got so much better. But I was happy I made the team in the first place because tryouts were hard!
We just played our last game, and we won 4 to 3 in penalty kicks. We scored a goal in the first five minutes of the game. Then we kept it up till the last two minutes. Then they scored a goal. Then we went to overtime. No one scored. Then we went to shoot outs. We had the shot first and we made it. We were all happy that first time. Then they got a goal. Then we missed then they missed. After we made and they missed. Then we made it again then they made it. Then all of it led up to this goal. This person named Santana shot the ball going into the goal and we started running off the field. We were all so happy. Our coach told us before the game if we win this game we can go to Golden Corral.
Our school is not very good at sports but we are the best at education. So that’s we were happy cause it was our first win (in the season). Union park (who we were going against) never won a game either this season. Also I knew someone on their team. His name is Edwin, he was at my school last year. Even though we won one game I still got better and had a great time. Now volleyball!!!
