Tonsils and Adenoids

So Richard had his tonsils and adenoids out on Tuesday. The surgery went fine. I stayed home with the other boys and Ben said the first thing Richard asked was "Is the surgery over?" Ever responsible. Then he wanted to go home to see me and his brothers. :) So here are some pictures of the 'fun' we've been having. It is spring break for Richard so he won't miss school until next week. I will probably have him stay home a few days also.

By fun I mean the boys eating homemade popsicles.

And working on the awesome Star Wars X-Wing fighter Lego set we got him for this very week. He has taken it apart and put it back together several times. Meant for 9 years and up...ha!

We constantly remind him to drink so he doesn't get dehydrated and we've gone through a lot of Jello and popsicles. He liked ramen the first day but then the pain worsened (as is expected) so now we are back to just Jello, juice, popsicles and today he even had a yogurt. There really are a lot of foods you can eat, it's just a matter of will power.

Spencer is also becoming very independent at times. Here he has built a train track all by himself. He likes the trains.
