Summer's Top Ten

Looking at my last post I can't believe the time has flown. The greatest way I can think to sum up our summer is do a Top Ten list (chronological order) Many of you will just skip it and go to the pictures so maybe that will catch you up instead - a picture is worth 1000 words anyways right??
1.) may FLEW - michael and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary by going to the Melting Pot and spending the night out. Michael also graduated with his masters from Southern Seminary - WHOO HOO!!! no more school (for the both of us :))
2.) we took our youth to fall creek falls and I hiked 4 miles with my 8 week old son attached to me - he slept the WHOLE time! I guess he felt like he was on a treadmill in the womb :) he spent many hours there
3.) emily, michael's sister, and terry (her hubby) welcomed their first little one to the family - Mia Catherine. Mia and Landon are 8 weeks apart! i hear loud holidays in the future....
4.) michael went to camp for 10 days and I stayed back with Landon. Spent several nights with my mom, dad, grams, and granddaddy then went up to camp for a day. very restful but very weird since I have been at camp the last 7 years
5.) Dad smoked his usual ribs and chicken thighs for 4th of july.....yum......can taste them now
6.) We did some local mission stuff around town with our youth in july and then ended the week by going to Six Flags. Michael and I got to ride with Hall and John John on their first ever roller coaster that went upside down......i'll never forget how hard I was laughing as John John was singing "Indescribable" at the top of his lungs
7.) Michael and I were able to sneak away for a few days to a friend's lakehouse before school started. it was great to spend time together and with landon doing nothing - thank you!!
8.) School is in full gear and I am trying to find the definition of balance - working moms....any tips??? I do have my best friend's little girl in my class, Adeline, and that is for sure the highlight already of my year. Plus a little boy whom I LOVE that calls me "Missssss. Senkins!!!" Add that to the list right under "Mrs. Chickens"
9.) Landon got his two bottom teeth almost immediately after his 4 month birthday. I'm already praying he has his daddy's genes in the dental area....
10.) Life is so much more fun with a baby. The saying is so true.....a baby fills the space in your heart you never knew was there. Michael and I are loving every moment with our little guy.

Landon on his 4 mile hike with me - he LOVED it - my back felt like I was pregnant again!
