Which DSLR brand and model

I have had a Canon point and shoot for a few years and am getting ready to buy a DSLR. I still have my 35mm EOS Rebel with 35-85mm and 75-300 mm EF lenses and filters and a teleconverter, I have really missed having an SLR but have been waiting for the prices to drop. My dilema now is what to get, I would say I am definitely more than a newbie but not quite a pro. I have taken a couple of classes and enjoy playing with all of the settings. Should I lean towards another Canon since I have a lens that I can use already. I know the 35-85mm EF wont do me much good with the focal length factor and the lens that will come with it. Is having the 75-300mm worth sticking with Canon? My children do gymnastics indoors and I would like to be able to shoot that, no flash is allowed though. I also do some shots of baseball and other activities along with the usual family events. I am usually designated as the family photographer. Can I go with the Rebel XSI or should I go to the 40D? Is the extra $300-400 worth the additional ISO stops and buffer times? I see most people rate the Nikon D90 higher, should I just scrap the Canon and go with Nikon. I have been chewing on all the data for a while and have been reluctant to pull the trigger.
