Steppin' Out Saturday

Saturday, we stepped out in search of weekend adventures that involved air
conditioning because it is WAY TOO HOT here in Louisiana!  We lounged around for a
few hours: reading, catching up on our neglected DVR, tidying up around the house.
We needed a little fresh, if not stifling, air and so we ventured out to the library and
then spent a few hours shopping for school and art supplies.  Isabelle will be starting
the second grade in one week and we are all so excited for her.  I still get giddy over the
smell of fresh notebooks and newly sharpened pencils.
We are an outdoor loving family and these dog days of summer have really defeated us,
with temperatures reaching 105 and no signs of letting up any time soon.  And so we are
in hibernation mode, creating blanket forts under the kitchen table, having dance-offs
and dress-up tea parties, lounging in the pool and seeking solace in its cool water.  It has
been a lazy, easy weekend, and sometimes that's just what our little tribe needs.
Here's what we wore:

Comment Love Day... school starts tomorrow for my 1st & 4th graders, still shopping. Great job and the photo, really easy to follow your "catalogue. "Fortunately for me the public schools here require a dress code so I don't have to think about the clothes. Adorable outfits... but more importantly, beautiful family. Thanks for sharing.

I can't believe school is already starting! It's weird to see all the stores filled with school supplies. Love the pic of the two girls. What cuties! Stay cool!

I can totally relate with you all for staying in the ac! Temps + humidity in Chicago have been gross! Great creative indoor activities though!

Yall are so cute! I just love Isabelle's hair like that. And we are getting a little sick of the heat over here too. I'm ready for the temperature to come down!

Thanks for your comment! And I'm of course happy to start following a new mommy blog! Your family is precious and I love how your oldest is starting second grade! I'm a first grade teacher so I just love this age.

Good luck to her in school this year!!

I love your printed top and those sandals. I am also wondering if Bree's dress comes in grown up size? I think it would look amazing with some tough, edgy accessories. Not for Bree of course, but for me :)
