Maddie Lou's Domestic Birthday

Maddie Lou celebrated her last two birthdays out of town, so she was excited to be home and around her friends this year. She started the day by shopping for a new bicycle with her Papa. After shopping around three different stores, she finally picked this one which she has named Gladys, just like Flavia de Luce in The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. She spent the morning pedaling around the neighborhood.
We spent the afternoon at the swimming pool and when we came home, she'd gotten a bee sting on the front porch. At age 12 you move into a new church class, which in the girls' case is called the Beehive class. Her church leader really runs with a theme, as you can see by the poster, the balloons, the Bit-O-Honey . . . Maddie was tickled.
She opted for a Boston Cream Pie for her cake.
It was a hit. Even her brothers, who had spent much of the day railing against the injustice of life (as it was not their birthdays), and consequently pounding each other, found something to like about the Boston Cream Pie.

I hope none of the girls in my Beehive class see this post. Overachievers! :)
