My day in court...

Saturday I went with Derrick to class so I could be a witness for him in his trial skills class. Derrick thinks it is funny that I was nervous but I really didn't know what to expect. I read over my deposition many times and Derrick asked me questions to make sure I knew what was going on. But when it was all said and done I kept my cool on the witness stand and actually had a fun time doing it. When I was cross examined by Derrick's classmate that was a little scary but it went good. It was fun to see what my dog has been doing in law school. Derrick did a good job, I was impressed. I got to sit through the end of the trial where he gave his closing statement. I met his buddy professor that he goes to the coffee shop with. He told me that Derrick will make a great attorney. It is hard for me to believe that this journey is almost over. The time here in Michigan has gone by fast, I'm ready to be back home but I can't believe where the time goes. It feels like we just got here in ways.

Deke has been busy preparing for his final that is Wednesday. I'm excited to have my husband back when he is done with everything. He has been putting in some long days and nights. I swear last week we spent no time together. Hopefully the next two semesters won't be as busy at the end of the semester. Everything should be winding down now.

We are looking forward to our trip home in a week and half. We will be seeing everyone very soon!
