Last night Steven and I planned on going to the Detroit Temple as our Friday date night. I was to pick him up right after he was done with school and then we would drive straight to Detroit. On my way to pick up Steven I got a cell phone call, and of all people, it was the temple president. I thought "How did he know we were coming? I did not schedule an appointment, or did I?" It turned out that he didn't know, but stated that our bishop had referred us to him to be temple workers. I told him that we were headed over to Detroit at that very moment; how convenient is that! On the way over there we got held up in traffic. Luckily though we made it to Detroit in a decent how, but poor Steven was tired and hungry. On our way I told Steven that we could eat any where he wanted, but it turned out because of lack of time, our options ended up on being very limited to KFC and a small diner, and Steven let me know that KFC was not going to satisfy his 10am hunger. We were scrunched for time and I could feel the tension in the air as Steven said "why do we do this? I don't like being rushed." I thought to myself "Because there is no other time to go to the temple, and you just told me that your hungry. What do you want me to do?," but I kept my mouth shut. He was right we were scrunched for time. I felt like I was in a lose-lose situation. Well, I knew for sure I did not like the hungry/irritable version of Steven so I took him to the small dinner. We rushed through dinner and rushed to the temple, and in our ideal world we would have made it to the 8pm session, but we didn't. Amazingly though what really happened is that as soon as we entered the door the atmosphere changed. There was not that sense of rush or failure. I felt at peace and happy. I still felt good for coming. We were able to meet with the temple president and he offered us the opportunity to work as ordinance workers, and stated how we would be blessed in doing so. We then went and did sealings. When it was all said and done everything turned out perfect. No, we did not make it in time for the session, but we were able to do sealings, an experience that Steven and I always wanted to have, and on top of that meet with an amazing man of God. After going to the temple we left with a peace that we did not have before entering, and an excitement in the opportunity to work at the temple. Oh, and I learned next time to pack dinner. :)

Well, this week and last week have been pretty good. Last week I had mid-terms in torts, criminal law, and contracts. Funny thing is that the test that I felt the worse about, torts, I did the best and the test that I though I did pretty well in I did pretty good but not as good as the one I felt bad about. Anyways, I am above the average in all the classes according to the mid-terms. Nevertheless, I do not want to get a false sense of security because in law school the only test that really matters is the final. I have heard stories of people that have aced the mid-term and still got a C. Also, more good news is that in my skills class (a class that is suppose to teach me law school reasoning and writing skills) practice essay for torts I only missed 1/2 point for a 97 percent. This essay is graded by a professor on campus. Once again, however, I do not want to get a false sense of security, but at least I know I'm not way out in the deep-in. Other than law school and Becky''s work, we haven't done much. I guess last Friday we went to see saltinbanco by Circ De Soli (I think that is how you spell it). It was amazing what they could do. I would highly recommend seeing any of their performances if you get the chance. Well better get back to work.

Well lets see . . .This week has been pretty uneventful. I have just been doing the normal thing. You know, reading and studying. It has been pretty good. Next week is mid-terms and I have a bit of studying. The good thing is that they are only worth about 10% of my grade so I don't have to worry too much. Becky is at work right now. She has started working nights so I don't see her often. The leafs are changing colors and things are going to really get colorful in the next couple of weeks. We'll have to take some pics and post them for all to see. Well things are going great and we'll be sure to keep everybody updated to our progress.
