But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Apparently, our kids are starting to show some serious signs of allergies-- well at least we're 99.9% sure that's what they're experiencing.  We were hoping that we would be able to avoid them altogether, but with five we should have known at least a few of them would have some issues.

Putting a finger on what the allergens are is a bit more of a challenge.  Isaac was allergic to oranges for a while, but the babies haven't started solid food or juice yet, so that can't be it.  We have had them outside a lot more, due to the beautiful weather, so maybe there's something in the air that is doing it.

The symptoms they display are sometimes fleeting and almost imperceptible, sometimes much more obvious.  The funny thing is that they each have very different symptoms. We were able to catch them on camera during some of the more "blatant" episodes.  Sorry for the fuzziness of some of them, but we did the best we could.

Grace kind of drops into an apathetic malaise, being moody and ill-tempered.  This was pretty much a warning to "back off!"  Weird.

Seth's symptoms are hard to describe.  Goofy?  Loopy????
David's allergic response can only be described as "unrestrained euphoria."
Will just leans to his right and lets the milk dribble out.
Marcie's the hardest to endure: outright rage.

If any of you have any suggestions as to what might be causing these issues, please let us know.  We are open to any suggestions, no matter how seemingly ridiculous.  We're confused and, I guess, befuddled as well.
