Peeps on Parade

Photos below but first, here's an update on life with the Crew.

    Last week was full of fun and visits from friends. We got to hang with Jena -back from Uganda. Yeah! We also, put her to work kid-sitting at the doctor's office while Tim and I picked up our anti-Malaria meds.

    We got to catch up with our friend Heather (formerly known at Faith as "Cammie") and meet her beau, Eric. We had long and mutually encouraging conversations. Well, the mutual part is a bit of an assumption. =) Eric made quite an impression! Especially when he let Justus dive head first out of his lap to the floor. We will certainly never forget you Eric. We'll think of you often while working through our son's developmental delays. Only kidding!

    Speaking of Justus ---these past two weeks have been HUGE for him (besides the head injury, ha!). First, he is a walking maniac. Second, he is officially a member of the Sexton family. We received his final decree of adoption on Thursday. AND lastly, he is a whopping 1 year old today. To see how this love lump entered the scene, read here and here and here.

    And finally, I am packing like a wild woman. We will leave on Thursday for Atlanta where our parents will become contestants on a new reality show called "Extreme Grandparenting." Not really, but they will think they are on Survivor by the end of the week. Tim and I will fly out on Friday to spend six days with our favorite missionaries in Haiti! If you don't know much about them -read their blog here and you will soon see why we love them so.

As you can see, it's been a busy couple of weeks and will continue to be a busy few weeks. Pray for patience in the midst of chaos, for safety while traveling, and for grandkids to go easy on their elders. Here are the photos as promised:

Heather, Eric, and the crew!

(notice Eric is NOT holding the baby-we ain't stupid. ;-))

An awesome couple!!! Aside from the fact that they make us feel really old.

A big box for a big one year old.

What could it be guys?

No matter. It all ends up in the same place.

wow. so i just learned something. you are glass half full - i am glass half empty. I counted only the days you are here (not travel days) in my post about your pending arrival --- and you counted ALL SIX DAYS ... I need to learn some thing from you - it is lucky you are coming down here!

Can't wait.


The Sexton Crew said...

No, no, my dear. You have mistaken DENIAL for optimism. I choose to say six days because four sounds way too short and I don't like that at all! I will suck every minute out of you that I possibly can.

Do not learn from me -I am warped through and through. See you in THREE days (not counting tonight or Friday.) ;-)

wow I can't believe little man is 1! I am so thankful I got to take care of him in the baby room week after week and watch him grow! He is a special little guy! You guys are so awesome!

Eric said...

"Developmental Delays?!" Ouch! That cuts to the core! Such witty eloquence is clearly uncalled for. At any rate, Thanks again for taking us in, and I look forward to hearing about Haiti.
