The Adventures of Superboy and His Trusty Sidekick, Superbaby!

Most of the time he is known as not-so-mild-mannered toddler George, but when the neighborhood is in need, he transforms himself into.... SUPERBOY!

 Always safety conscious, he wears his helmet whenever he rides his speedy trike as his cape flaps in the wind. 

Foreseeing the tragedy of a curious cat stuck in the garbage can, Superboy closes the lid of each open can he passes. This makes for a very long walk.

He is sure to interrogate EVERY suspicious branch he comes across. This is not an exaggeration.

 Despite his busy schedule, he always stops to point out the beautiful flowers EVERY flower. 

 Litter? Not on Superboy's watch! 

 Don't forget to close the lid!

Bike stuck in the sand? Superboy will spin the wheels for you and throw sand every which way!

Have an ant hill in front of your house? No worries! Superboy will stop to inspect that as well!

And now we learn about Superbaby, the trusty sidekick.

What's What

Live continues on. General Conference was this past weekend. I was definitely inspired to be better. I want to be a more nurturing mom. I feel like I'm so rough all the time. I want to be one of the women they described so beautifully in Conference. I want to doubt my doubts before I doubt my faith. What an awesome quote by President Uchtdorf!

It's October and it's still pretty hot around these parts. But it's beautiful in the early mornings. In fact, I'm shivering as I type this with my back door open to let the cool air in. I don't know if I will ever survive another Utah winter after being spoiled here. But there is nothing like a Utah summer. So perfect!

Speaking of Utah, our family is currently at a crossroads. Glen has the option of going to school to work on getting a doctorate or getting a teaching job with his masters and living our days out in Utah close to his family and a chunk of my family. The second option is way more comfortable. We would have everything we need. The first option seems more like what Glen has always wanted. I want him to do what he dreams of doing. I am happy to live in a tiny apartment with my kids for a few years while he gets his degree. I would follow him anywhere. That sentence just reminded me of a conversation I had with my best friend in high school. I said, "I never want to be one of those girls that just follows a man everywhere. I want to go to *enter prestigious university here*." Oh, how I have changed. I would do anything for my little family. I am so glad I was able to finish my degree at BYU though. I definitely wouldn't have had Glen not pushed me to do it. We don't seem to be receiving any kind of revelation on which option is best for our family. I think that is because both options are good options. But time is running short. Glen would have to start applying to schools next month which means he has to take the GRE now. I would love either option.

It feels like the right time to welcome another baby into our family but I'm afraid I always will feel that way. Luckily Glen is level-headed. I hope to be pregnant within the next year. I just love my boys so much and can't wait to add another!

Life surges ahead! I love this little life of mine and I wouldn't have it any other way!
