The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I see you Cecile.

Loves to you also. :wub: Hope your tummy is better today.

I really need to play with the kidlets. Talitha is sulking because I need to spend some time with the baby and she doesn't think it's fun for all of us to play on the floor.

Had to change the pic again ... Adam took this one last night at Maggianos, the other one had been taken at Christmas. There was a great pic of Morgan and I making fish lips that I was going to use, but Adam didn't email it to me.

Morgan, they're not telling you the truth, your hair is ugly, just like I've told you every day ... (I'm so jealous of her hair and the fact that that's how it looks air dried!!!)

Susan, great news about the painting!

Andrea, great pic!

Vincent--Glad that your situation is stable. Continue to take good care of yourself and stay on top of this thing. Is it ok with your doctor to run? If it's still hot down there, don't stay out too long. :)

No way am I going ut side! Its tripple digits! I can not take it much over 80 realy. This running is on my tread mill till fall.

Vincent--One other thing. Have you tried New Balance? My son has problems with his feet, and those are what the podiatrist recommended. They come in many sizes and widths :)

Yes they do, and I used to wear them when running track in HS. LAst store I went to I tired EVERY pair they had in my size range... no go! :(

Hiya Andrea!!! Beautiful picture!!! I have that one already ;):) How are all your little rug rats today? Hope everything is going well with your new lessons! (Did you start teaching or are you just getting ready?)

Don't start until the 4th of September I think.....just trying to get ready. Then I'll really be going through thread withdrawal. I'll be on here as much as possible once school starts but I'll probably be spending most my time keeping up like a lot of you. :D

JoshuaN... I seeeee you... I know you're new and this thread is a bit intimidating, but we really are harmless :) You can join in.

I love your new signature addition (but I will say that I miss the choo choo click clack) :P

I have my own OMG revelation that I noted on a different thread.

I have had knee to ankle pains for the last 6 years. I just noticed a week or so ago that they are finally gone. I have a sneaky suspicion that the gluten and/or soy was the culprit. I had always figured it was a nerve or something from my first pregnancy that never got back to normal. Sure glad that it was just food related. :P

Mitch was talking to another driver while he was waiting up north last night. She had said that HSP causes problems with the liver, everything I've read online has said the kidneys. Wonder if it could be both. I don't know if I should ask the doctor tomorrow or not. He doesn't think Talitha will have any problems. I will be real curious to see what happens with the first cold this season. It supposed to come back, but not as bad then. I wonder if the severity could have something to do with gluten. After all, rheumatoid arthritis and abdominal pain are also part of gluten intolerance.

EDIT: The fellow driver is also familiar with celiac/gluten intolerance and the probelms with soy. He was quite surprised about that. She normally hauls bees and honey for one of the owners of the business who has a berry and honey business also. They must of needed an extra driver for the main business which is primarily lumber.

Andrea, I always had bad joint pain in my knee, mainly my left knee, my wrist, and my thumbs. It's pretty much gone now that I'm gluten-free, but I noticed it bugging me again a little, not nearly as bad as before. I had been taking glucosimine, chondroitin, and msm, but ran out a month ago, guess I need more.

Now, off to find the kids under the crib. That has become there favorite thing to do when Seth wakes up. My daughter gets him (since he's next to my side of the bed) and takes him underneath to hide. :P

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

No!! Leave them there for at least ten minutes while you enjoy a tea and some social time with your buddies!! Then tell your kids how well they hid! You get some quiet time, they get to think you can't find them! It's a win-win situation!! :lol: Yell out once in a while, where are you? :rolleyes:
