Jury duty and the crazy cats

This week has been interesting! Matt went back to school Tuesday to his new class of 28 8 year olds. He thinks they will be a pretty good group, so hopefully that is a good sign!
I was called in for jury duty Wednesday and just my luck, was randomly selected to be on a jury for a trial on Thursday. It was for an assault and battery. It was all very surreal. I felt more like I was watching a tv show than actually serving a purpose, until of course we had to deliberate and decide a jurisdiction for the two defendants. Interesting how our court system works...there were 6 of us on the jury making a decision for these people, and we felt like we didn't have hard facts. We think just about all the witnesses were lying about something, we had to choose what to believe. Crazy!
Anyway, just an interesting experience to have. On a lighter note, took some pictures of our crazy cats this week to share!

Go Tigers!

We finally made it to a Tigers game in Comerica park Friday night! What a blast. We arrived in Detroit around 5pm and ate at Hockeytown Cafe then made our way over to the park for a 7 oclock game. Tigers won 8 to 1 against the White Sox! Also afterward they had fireworks-the best firework display I have ever seen. In Matt's head he has already planned our next Tigers outing...

the Jumbotron (which was right behind us)
The view from our seats-we were in the way outfield, but you could still see the plays being made. Look up Austin Jackson's home run in the 5th inning...the ball went right in front of our stands! (we were 6 rows back) Anyone see us on TV?
Saturday night after Brewsters-cuddle time with Micah and Kramer! Kramer crawled on top of Micah all by himself :)
