The family has known for a while that Brant has some pretty serious indoor and outdoor allergies. In order to begin a more targeted treatment program, Maren decided it was time to get the real testing done. It was a 2 hour appt with a 20 minute block of NO SCRATCHING ALLOWED. Going into the appointment, Maren was sure the prickly pokes would be the worst part, but Brant's agony came during the no scratching waiting period. In conclusion, the boy is allergic to grasses, weeds, trees, cats, dust, mold, and soy. Thank goodness for antihistamines!

The consolation prize...

Brant is in a little flag football league through the y. He's on a team with some friends, otherwise he may not be too thrilled. The weather's been great and he seems to be happy. Brant's parents have known for a long time that he doesn't have much interest in competition. It's still pretty cute to watch him figure out which way to run.

The team chose their name, "the Destroyers." That might be the only intimidating thing about them!
