Girls Night Out



Last night was my 1st Girls Night Out in SC. The Girls went to dinner at Chick fil a, and then I joined them later at Cato. It was a night of silliness and shopping fun! Here are a couple photos.

Keepers and Contenders

















Today, Keepers at Home and Contenders of the Faith, met for their monthly meetings at our new home. We had a lovely time. The girls all learned about cake decorating, while the boys all learned how to fight and protect themselves. Here are the photos from today!

Parsnip


video

I just realized, I have never blogged about Parsnip. Who is Parsnip? Our new kitten, yes, you read right. A kitten. Those of you who know us are thinking? Isn't Chris VERY allergic. Yes, he is. But Parsnip is an outside cat. I've been wanting to get the children a pet to help teach responsibly and a free kitten just happen to fall into our hands. A kitten is also a low maintenance pet. Parsnip is half domestic cat and half Siamese. Siamese cats are very vocal and Parsnip must have gotten the gene. He loves to let us know he is there, kind of like some of our children. :) Here is a photo of Parsnip and a short video of Hannah playing with him.

Our New Pastor and his Wife




With moving to SC, we have been blessed by our new pastor, Robert McCurley, and his wonderful preaching and shepherding. This past week, we had some questions, so pastor and his wife Jeanette, met us at a state park for an evening of food, fun, and fellowship. We had a very nice time, including, the children swimming in the creek, climbing rocks, a rattlesnake (which was pregnant!), dinner, and long talks. We ended the night be being kicked out of the state park by a park ranger, oops! You know us Reeder's, we like to chat. :) I was able to get a few photos, including a quick shot of pastor and his wife, in the dark, before leaving.

SC Friends


Upon moving to SC, our family became good friends with some people from our new church. Here is a photo from this past Lord's Day. The lady in the middle, Mrs. E, is the person who showed our family lots of hospitality over the months of travel to SC, she and her family opened their home on several occasions. You'd never guess when our families were together that there were 13 children in their house.

Mary's 1st Rice

Can you believe it. Mary is almost 5 months old! The other day, I got out my baby scale and weighed her. She was a little over 14lbs! Yay, for Mary Kate! She has more than doubled her birth weight and has not needed supplemental formula in over a month. Nursing is going very successfully. At nearly 5 months old, I thought it was time to bring on the baby rice! So here she is, eating her first baby rice cereal.

Sisters





Abigail Sewing




Today Abigail started her first "real" sewing project. In the past, she helped with my sewing projects and practiced on the machine. But today she worked on her own real project. She made herself a skirt and a matching headcovering. When she was finished, she started working on her next project a skirt and matching covering for Grace. Abi plans to make skirts and coverings for all the girls. More pictures to come...

"She makes coverings for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple." Proverbs 31:22

Open Air Preaching

The ReederBunch are still getting settled in our new SC home, but today, we took a break from all the unpacking to go downtown Greenville and hand out tracts as our new pastor, Robert McCurley, did his weekly "Open Air Preaching" (street preaching).
