On Tuesday, Manga Dork and Wild Child went back to school. We endured some BFF drama. BTW, I did mention this to her Nana who said she would talk to her about it. We are close enough for me to do this. After 4 days of 2 hour volleyball practices, 1 hour of cheernastics, and 4 days in Junior High...Manga Dork was completely overwhelmed. I insured her it will get more manageable. Wild Child LOVED preschool and is ready to attend again next week.
On Wednesday, we witnessed GOAT GONE WILD! We did find Charlie and he is ok. He has a loose horn and seems to be giving Tony the cold shoulder.
On Thursday we battled the weight issue. Be on the lookout for some great changes in our lifestyle! My plan starts with me and spreads to my children. After all, they model what they see. I am going to be a BETTER role model.
On Friday, Manga Dork went camping with Lil Bro, SIL, niece, nephew, FIL, an MIL. Woo Hoo! It is only us on the farm for the whole weekend! I hope she has a great time! They are in Amish Country...hope she doesn't bring back that Amish virus! LOL!
In blogging world, I found things that...
Made me laugh........Dream.Imagine.Live (I am new to her blog and this cracked me up)
Made me cry............Crazy Lady Jan (Hit too close to home)
Made me think........Colorado McEwens (You may get frequent flyer miles for this one)

Manga Dork has been very self conscious about her weight lately. She needs to lose a few pounds, but she looks so cute in her clothes. At the Back to School fashion show we had to tell her constantly to unwrap her arms so we could see her shirt. She even tries to wear her hair pulled forward on the sides so it looks like she is hiding. Over the summer she wanted to drop 20 pounds, but she did not. On the first day of school, her BFF said "You got fatter" to her in front of a group of kids. Argh...I am still fuming over that one.

Tony kicked Charlie in the side one real good time. All Charlie did was stand on his back legs, bow his head, and head for Tony's back legs again.
Tony even got all kung fu on him....I can only imagine how cool this pic would be with a Nikon (Hint Hint).
We were unable to get Charlie to stop and Tony was getting sweaty. I was starting to worry about Tony! I called my FIL to tell him what was going on. Charlie continued to harass Tony all the way to the water troughs. FIL couldn't get him to quit before Tony kicked him very hard. It was getting dark. FIL said Charlie was bleeding and it looked like one of his horns were broke. I took my car to search for him. I found Tony, but Charlie was nowhere to be found. FIL was going to look for him this morning. So far I haven't heard anything...

Oh no! Stuffed in her locker on the first day! That's not a good sign. LOL! She was in overload as she looked around the classroom at all the ABCs, 123s, toys, games, crayons, books, glue bottles, etc. She got so excited she had to go to the potty! At least she didn't pee on herself. That would have been a bad start!
Hope everyone had a great first day of school this year!

I hate feeling the way I feel right now. I am usually happy and laughing. Now I just feel grouchy, bloated, headachey, and fat. I think I'll go write some hate mail to Carmen Electra...
Happy Monday! Tomorrow we start school...

Manga Dork had to have some AppleBottom jeans. The jeans were 50% off, but the shirt was almost the same price as the jeans! Yikes! She looks hip though...now all she needs are some "boots with the fur!" **Flo Rida song for those not hip on the hop**
At the end of the fashion show it is tradition for the audience to each try to guess each model's favorite outfit. Whoever guesses correctly wins a kiss from the model. Manga Dork owed her Daddy one! Wild Child was giving us some attitude. Good thing she didn't have a cell phone or she might have pulled a "Naomi Campbell." LOL!

Wild Child wore panties out for the first time out with me today. She almost made it to the end, but had an accident. I luckily brought a change of clothes. There was another mom changing her daughter's clothes in the Sears bathroom because she had an accident.
First stop at the mall was for haircuts. Cutie gave us LOADS of attitude. We left her alone until another day.
Wild Child was ready for her haircut. She is excited about starting preschool.
Manga Dork's haircut looked great. Her hair is SO thick. We did not get home til 11PM. I am exhausted.
Sunday evening is our 8th annual Back to School Fashion Show!
Here are the rules....
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.

The highlight of the barns was definitely the corn box. Like a sandbox...only with dry corn. My kids would have played for hours. Last year when we went home from the fair, I found a kernel of corn in Cutie Patootie's diaper. Of course....it's in the scrapbook! LOL!

The local raccoon came over to enjoy some overripe fruits from Gumpaw's friend, the produce man. So cute! Reminds me of the movie "Elf"..."Does somebody want a hug?" LOL! That does not end very well...
We are back home and today is full of "fun" (can you hear the sarcasm). I procrastinated and I am trying to get Wild Child enrolled in preschool. She is completely "daytime" potty trained. Night time...not so much! LOL!
We are going to the County Fair tonight! Mmmmm....I can smell the funnel cake now!
