Recently it was my brother’s birthday. A week later we went to Fun Spot with some friends of his and our cousins. Fun Spot’s address is 5700 Fun Spot Way Orlando,Florida 32819 US. I usually go to one of the big parks like Disney or Universal but it is fun to do different things.
If you want to go to Fun Spot I would recommend going on early Sunday morning because it isn’t really busy. Fun Spot opens at 10-midnight so you have a little time to sleep in. They have go carts, carnival rides, two roller coasters and other little stuff. The go carts are the main attraction of the park, I think. You can ride single rider or double. They have around 4 tracks and one of them is flat. The rest are up and down. The one problem with them is that the go carts are basically a lawnmower and it uses gasoline to power them. So eventually they will need to figure out a different way to power the go carts.
There are two different roller coasters and one I wooden and the other I medal. The wooden roller coaster is one of the most intense wooden roller coasters because at one point you flip almost at a 90 degree angle. Like I said the lines are really short too. The medal one is a coaster where your feet dangle and the track is above you. After the first drop the rest of the ride is relaxing.
They have a food court which has ok food. I had chicken tenders and fries. Above the restaurant they had this sky diving thing where they bring people up in the sky and drop them. It reminded me of bungee jumping. The gator part of the park was cool. They had a section with baby gators, with adult, albino which was interesting, and a section with about, I would say 10″ long.
I would give Fun Spot a 4/5 stars. It was fun and different and I would go again with some more of my friends. And if you were ever board on a weekend plan a day to go!
Fun Spot – It’s HUGE!
I have now finished my second week of school. It is a lot more different from 6th grade. Especially because this year we have 7 periods and last year we only had 5 periods and we still go to school the same time and end it at the same time. I go to the same school. It’s a K-8 school with a magnet program through middle school. I’m in 7th grade and I’m on the soccer team. I play goal keeper and midfield for a substitute.
My favorite teacher is my civics teacher and my favorite subject is math for now. My teacher for math gives me a lot of homework and it is getting harder so I don’t know if I will like math after this year as much as I liked last year. My math teacher likes to give homework and makes us take lots of notes in class. I’m looking forward to civics and space science. My same science teacher last year for 6th moved up to 7th grade. I’m am also planning to join back in chorus, maybe tryout for basketball and join track again.
Back to school – 7th grade.
If you haven’t heard there is a new Major league soccer team(MLS). That soccer team is called the Orlando City Lions. They are not the best right now but they are also good. At the begging of the season they are 1-2-2. That means one win two losses and one tie.
Their first game was against New York. They tied one-one. The cool part about that game was that I was there. What I can tell about that game is that the refs were very bad. In the first halve no one scored a goal. But in the second halve NYC scored a goal. The bad thing about the is that I was in the bathroom. When I came back I was sad. But at the 90th minute we scored a goal. His name was Kaká. He is really good. Everyone was excited. At the end it was a tie.
The other games were good too but this was my first MLS game so I will think it will be hard to top. This week in the mail I got a letter saying something about the Lions. It said on it “Brendan, you were part of history.” When I got I was surprised about it.
The next game after the NYC they were going against the Houston Dynamo. They won 1-0. Their next game was against the White Caps and lost 1-0. Their next game was an other tie against Montreal, 2-2. Their latest game was against DC United and lost 1-0 at the last minute. Right now they are 6th in the eastern conference.

Saturday we went to my brother’s baseball game. It was not that exciting. Then at near the end there was a fight because the coach on the other team was a jerk. He would let the kids get free bases. So near the end the other coach was complaining. Then our coach said “what are you crying about now.” Then the other coach got really mad. So then the other coach took off his hat and glasses and was going to fight our coach. So the other coach raged and stared charging at him. But luckily the other coach on the team pushed him away. That not the bad part. He said to our coach, “I’m going to f*ck you up.” In front all the kids. He said that like 5 times. Are coach was like “you don’t know me!” It was funny but bad at the same time. Also my mom got the whole thing on tape. I felt scared, curious, and I kinda and didn’t want them to fight. I think it is not good to do this a little league baseball game.
Sunday it was Easter. I woke up and started to pick up eggs. They were filled with candy and money. It was fun. Also family came over to our house to get breakfast. So family from my mom and dad’s side came. I played with my cousins. We played xbox and played outside. I ate cheesy potatoes, bacon, and pasta. It was yummy. Then we went on another egg hunt I got more candy. I had a hard time finding my green eggs because it blends in with the grass and the shrubs. It was really fun and frustrating. My little cousin won. But everyone got a prize, which was a Reese’s egg. Happy Easter!!!!!!!!

My mom was out with a friend so me, my brother, and my dad went out on a boys night.
First we went to see the new Captain America movie. It was awesome movie. My favorite part was the battle between the winter soldier and Captain America. We saw it in IMAX 3D.
After we went to get diner. We went to Ale House. I had honey mustard zingers. Two waitresses at the restaurant thought my brother was cute. They kept making comments the whole time. One even hugged him. It was funny.
Then we went mini golfing at Congo River. My brother and my dad got a hole in one but I didn’t. At the end, me and my brother tied and my dad came in first. Me and my brother had 53 and my dad had 49. Then we went to get soft severed ice cream. It was a pretty fun day.

Last weekend I went to Universal. First we went on Spider-Man. Second we went on Jurassic park the boat ride. I liked the big drop and the dinosaurs. Third we went on the Harry Potter ride. Then we went to the other Harry Potter ride for littler kids with my little brother. That’s his favorite ride at Universal.
After that we went on Dragon Challenge other wise none as dulling dragons. After that we went to the Hułk. That’s my favorite roller coaster at Universal. Then we looked for ice cream and we couldn’t find it so we went to McDonalds.
Overall, I like Disney better because it has more rides, it has hotels and it’s so much bigger. But Universal has better and more roller coasters. Also Disney is more fun for me cause I know where every thing is and know what it is.

This blog I am going to talk about my football team and recent football games.
My football team I play on is a decent team. We get to pick our own team name, and we are the Spartans. Again. The quarterback’s name is Leiz he is a good quarter back and plays safety on defense. A safety covers the deep wider receivers. There is a other quarter back named Zach. He also plays safety. Our centers are Max and Tyler. They both play corners. Our running backs are Logan, Jacob, John, and Jay. They switch on the play we do. Our wider receivers are Logan, Zach, Jay, John, and me. Me and john are slots for a hand off. Most of the people do different places for a play. We also have people that just play on defense we have Michael that plays middle line backer he usually blitzes. Jay and John play line backers too. I play corner and Logan plays corner.
We are a good team the first time I played on the team. We where undefeated champs. Our quarter back then was Luke he was the best quarter back. The next season I was not on that team. The next season I was back on their team and we where 3-2-1. Three wins, two loses and one tie. The tie was against an undefeated team so I was happy. But the ref’s were not smart. They moved the ball back so we didn’t get the first down. This season we won 1 game and the next cancelled from all the rain. I’m hoping for a good season this time.
