First Crush – Tuesday, March 20

Tami PotterChildhood Memories, Life.In.Lists.


When preserving a memory it can be helpful to think like a reporter and list the 5 W's and the H (facts): who, what, when, where, why and how.


My first "Crush" Report

1. Who – A boy who came to our house with his sister that summer to ride their horse. (My dad boarded horses in the fields around our home.)

2. What – We climbed trees and explored the fields, ponds, and barns together.

3. When – Age: 10-11

4. Where – The corn fields, the pond, in the bales of hay that were stacked in the barn…

5. Why – He was a fun summer playmate and when school started he was nice to me on the playground.

6. How – A few years later he caught a moment alone with me and gave me my first kiss while we were attending a church youth activity.
