FC: Garrison Rehfus journal
1: The way my life has developed | The mix of my life I’m from my mom from my dad to my friends to my family. My pets are fun to play with run around and throw toys. I can see my dog run through the freshly mowed grass and see them roll around on the hot summer day. I drive the basketball to the hoop. I move from the diamond to the court. We throw we swing, we shoot, we run all the time to just have fun.
2: The year i was born.
3: The year of my Birth. This was the year that I was born in March 25 1999. I stared to crawl when I was 6 months. There where a lot of good thing that I got when I was young because every one wanted to play with me and I got all the attention. My very first Christmas was a roller coaster. I got very sick my first Christmas I was at the doctors office because I had 2 ear infections that where really bad. This is my roller coaster of my fist year. When I started to crawl my mom thought oh crap he is going to get in too a lot of things. They had to get a lot of locks so I couldn’t get in to the cabinets or any thing. The first time I could crawl was fun because I could start roaming the world! They all think that your cute until u start getting on their nerves. My sister wasn’t mad when I started to get all of the attention. The first Christmas of mine was a big roller coaster. My mom didn’t think that I was going to be home for Christmas. She thought that I would have to have been in the hospital. I was really lucky because they let me go home so I was able to have my first Christmas. My favorite gift that I got was a GIANT monster truck. The truck was green and black.
5: My first birthday When I was 1 I started to walk. My mom wouldn’t let me walk with my pacifier. I was a ring bear I ran there and dropped the rings then ran to my mom. Still at this point I didn’t have much impute or memory on what had happened. These are important things about my life from 1 to 2. When I was 1 I learned how to walk. It was nice to learn how to walk because it made it easier to learn the world. I was told that when I was a little kid my mom wouldn’t let me walk with my pacifier. I learned how to be annoying and that I have never grown out of. At this time I was still getting all of the attention but stared to get less since I got older. Then when I was 1 and a half I got to be the ring bear in the wedding. When I had to walk down the aisle I ran down and threw down the rings and ran to my mom. I look back at it and think that it was very funny. My sister was the flower girl. This was my uncle’s wedding. This was my first wedding.
6: My sleeping time
7: Potty time This was the year that I became potty trained! Though there weren’t more events in that year I got older. I was also still annoying more than likely. I have learned a lot about how I was as a little kid. Though I am still a kid I have learned that I have changed, as I got older just like everyone else. There is a time that everyone has to become potty trained. A lot of kids become potty trained around 2 and 3. I became potty trained at the age of 2 in half. This is an important time for kids and a mother and father because they don’t have to change any more diapers. The great thing is for kids they wont have to go to the bathroom in their diaper they can go to the restroom like a big boy. The thing that a kid dose everyday is gets older. As you get older you begin to get memorize. Then you start to remember more things. That is why I only have one event for this year that we can remember. There are important things to remember but there not a lot of important events each year.
9: Fire fighters There were a lot of good events and very bad events but now they are funny. This was the year that I went to a day care called wee wisdom and got in trouble. There where some bad things that had happened their. For Christmas from my grandma she got me a fireman suite that I got to pretend I was a fire fighter and run around outside. This was my favorite gift of that Christmas. This was the year that I got in trouble at wee wisdom. I was at day care and I was playing with my Tonka and a girl came up and tried to play with my toy and me. I got mad and I pined her down on the ground and put dirt in her mouth. My mom came to pick me up and she got very angry that I had gotten in trouble and I got in big trouble when I got home. This wasn’t funny at the time but when we look back at it as bad as it sounds its kind of funny. The girl may not think that it was funny but I do. This was they year that I was big on fire trucks and fire fighters. When I was a little kid it seemed that I had a new think each year and I was on the firefighter thing. So I got a miniature fire suite to where around. It was fun to run around in it. I still have it is up in my closet. This was my favorite gift of that year to.
11: Parents divorced This was a sad year for me my sister and my mom and dad. My parents had gotten divorced. This was also the year that I got in trouble at wee wisdom and when I got home my mom asked me what bad word did I say at day care and I said a different word then the daycare teacher told my mom. This was a rough year for me. Though things that happen shouldn’t change the decisions I make even if things change that I don’t like they all happen for a reason. The year my parents got divorced was a sad time. This was a rough year for everyone. I don’t really remember it or understood why at that time. These things happen for all types of reasons some time the people that are making the decisions don’t even understand. There can be things that confuse me about it and some times I can feel that I don’t really want to talk about and sometimes I want to avoid but you have to face it eventually and have to live two different places. Then at day care again I said a very bad word. My teacher told my mom about it we got home and she asked me what word I said at day care. So I said another word my mom said I guess that’s not the only word u said and then she said that she was told about another word not that word. I got in trouble for saying it. There are times when you should just not say what u thought you said and just say a bad word.
13: Fun This was the year of fun and the start to have gotten me to where I am today today and life in the future. This was the year I started to play t-ball and flag football. This was also the time I got to start the journey threw school. The school I started at was where I am today Burris laboratory school. These events have become very important in my life. This was the year of sports. I started to play sports such as t-ball and football. I had a lot of fun playing sports and I have played them threw the years. I had a lot of fun running the wrong way during baseball and running around and rolling in the mud in football. These things are very enjoyable to do all the time Then I got to go to school in am kindergarten. I had a lot of fun and it wasn’t full day. My teacher was Mrs. Huffman she was a very good teacher. I remember these bears that would help us learn how to right are letters they where always fun to play with when we where aloud to play with them. When you get in school it feels like it never ends.
15: Trouble This was year from high to lows. This was a year where I had kicked rocks at a couple of cars at wee wisdom. Then got in trouble when I had gotten home. Then I played another year of flag football and began to remember stuff about my life at this point and if I think about them I remember them. These will be important because I will need them as memories. We had been over at the playground. We where going inside and we where kicking rocks and they hit cars and we had gotten in trouble. This was a really bad thing at day care that we had done. I had to write letters to every person’s car that I got rocks on. It was the only time I remember getting in trouble for at wee wisdom. This was the year that I got to play a lot of different positions because I was one of the older ones so they let us play what we wanted to play if we could play that spot. I got to play defensive line and offense all over. Then I played more baseball this year. It was pitching machine baseball I was a good baseball player hitting the ball and fielding and catching.

19: sports This was a year of a lot of baseball. It became a lot of baseball because I played on a travel league called the Muncie chiefs. This was the year that I also started tackle football. Had a busy year in year with spring training for baseball and football twice a week with baseball ending as football started. I started traveling baseball so I got to play all over. Got to learn more about Indiana. Then got to play at fields that I was not used to playing at. To play on the chiefs you had to play on the regular teams to. This made you tired because you had to play on two different teams. Football was hard because we had to run around the whole property of metro two times each practice. Though we all had fun at the games it was hard at practice. The coach we had was very mean. This is why I didn’t like to play for him but I liked to play football. So I just waited until I could pay for a new coach.
21: cell phone This was the year that I got my first cell phone. There weren’t many kids that had cellphones at that point but it was still nice to have phone. Then for Christ mas I got my first play station2 it was cool because they just came out. This system was fun to play games on. It was the best gift that I had gotten for Christmas. The time I got my cell phone I was on spring break. It was close to my birthday and that is what I got for my birthday. It was the best birthday gift ever. It was fun to have a phone that way I didn’t have to go to my sister to use her phone. That’s why I was glad to get my cell phone. When I was at Christmas I was opening a present. This was a ps2 it was the coolest thing ever I thought. When we where done opening gifts I went to my room and set it up. I had a lot of fun playing the games like football. There was the time that I got my first system that I remembered having.
23: Camp crosley This was the year that we where in 4th grade. This was when we got are first trip to camp Crolsey. We all had a lot of fun. This was also where I had my second year of tackle football I had a lot of fun playing it. This was where I was the older one on the team. When we went to camp Crosley it was a long bus ride. When we got there we went to are rooms then we went straight to lunch. The cabin counselors we had where Blair and Elliot. Blair had to leave and go to another cabin because some one had to go home. We got the brand new cabins there. They had a skylight at the very top it was cool to look threw it. They had a bunch of bunk beds they where brand new. When I started to play more football you got to learn more about the positions and what you where supposed to do. I was on a different team the Cowboys. We where a good that year, we won a lot of games. Though we didn’t win the championship we had a good year. We had fun in are season.
25: Mud This was the year that I won the tournament for baseball. We played a long time and only lost two games that year. It was hard trying to get threw all the teams and winning. This was are Second year at camp Crosley. The second year was better because we knew every thing that was there. And we got to do new stuff there. This was a great year for are baseball team. We went 14 and 1 in the regular season. The only loss was to the Yorktown tigers. We ended up beating them in the tournament and beat Redkey again the only losses that they had where to us. We beat Redkey in the final game. This was the second year that I went to camp Crosley. We got to go do more stuff then we did the first year. We also new where every thing was so we could go there without getting lost. There weren’t any new things there the were all under construction
27: Golf This was my first year of middle school. Middle school was nothing that I expected it to be. It was nice how you had a different teacher every 55 minutes. I started middle school basketball. These events where different from each other and where both kind of fun school was fun some times but basketball was fun a lot. The first year of middle school was fun and boring. There were so times that where different from elementary and some that where the same. I liked that we had a locker and only had to be in a class for 55 minutes. There were some classes that didn’t make sense to even take but the schools decided to make them as a class. I had a lot of fun in 6th grade and have prepared me for 7th where I am today. This was my first year of middle school basketball. I had a lot of fun playing the season. I learned a lot about sport from Blair. We had a lot of plays to learn they were fun to learn and practice. They’re where a lot of places we got to go to. The games were fun to play in.
