places to go, things to see

Hello again!  This week has been exceptionally eventful!  First of all, the CCA was nice enough to give us tickets to a Portland Timbers game at Jeld-Wen Stadium.  We could walk there because we are so close!  The game was most likely the most exciting, tiring, cold, and crazy thing I have ever experienced.  The crowd was crazy, I could barely tell what was going on half the time, but it was really fun.  At the end I was so exhausted that on our way home I collapsed on the hill we live on; I was too tired to move so we had to wait a while before I felt I could walk the rest of the way up.

In the time following, I got breathtaking news from my “Sky High for Cy” team, The Big Climb team that raised over $7000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in my name! Apparently, they intended me to choose a prize from a sheet they gave me.  I had previously looked at the prize sheet, but I assumed they had chosen prizes for themselves; after all, it was they who made the climb.  I looked through the sheet with a bored expression on my face when, suddenly, I see a Wii, just barely in the price range allowed; cue: flabberghasts.  After the flabberghasts had left my oh-so-blown mind, I spiraled dizzily around, a Wii; I had never ever had a game console like that before, not ever, and now suddenly, I’m getting a Wii?  It blew my mind.  Not to mention the incredible generosity of the climbing team, I am mind-bogglingly grateful for what they have given me.  I also got a super nice multi-tool pocket knife from a guy in Texas – my mom says every boy should have one.  I cannot thank you enough, Sky High With Cy team and all your supporters!!!

A while afterwards, we got MORE tickets from the CCA, this time its for a play called “A Wrinkle in Time,” I heard there’s a book that it’s based off of but I’ve never read it.  Again we walked there; it was only a bit farther than Jeld-Wen Stadium.  The play was really cool, about some girl named Megan and her battle against the Black Cloud, the essence of all evil, and a flying brain.  The play was really good – the special effects were especially impressive; they had some projector rigged up so that they could swap backgrounds in seconds and apply effects to it.  Overall the whole thing was really good, and in the end we had some Chinese food in a nearby restaurant, a happy day!

P.S. Sorry about not posting any comics or drawings, a lot has been going on.  Next time I will try to have some.
