The inevitable Superb*wl post

Here are most of the kids, followed by all the guys, followed by a couple cheesy pictures.

Because we live in Wisconsin, I am contractually obligated to write a post about the Superbowl. Or they will escort me to the state line and drop me off in Minnesota. Not really -- most people in Wisconsin are too nice to do anything mafia-esque, even where the Packers are concerned.

We live a mere 30 minutes' drive from Lambeau field, and our group of friends from Bible study are all Packer fans (even the ones who weren't born in Wisconsin!). We decided to get together to watch the game. Here's the math: 12 adults, one high school freshman, and 18 kids between the ages of 4 and 12. It was really loud, and really fun!

The kids spent most of the time either eating snacks or playing ping pong in the basement, while some of the older boys watched the game. All the kids were laughing at the men, who were hollering and high-fiving each other when the Packers scored. One of the kids said, "I've never seen grown-ups jumping around and yelling so loud before!"

We had a great time, and let the kids stay up late to see the end of the game, as I'm sure plenty of other kids across the state did. Our apologies to all their teachers on Monday morning!

I don't quite understand the hype even when surrounded by it here too! But it is a nice time to be together, eat and be loud. Sounds like a fun Sunday afternoon!

I see the Johnson family members there. I remember when the packers where in the superbowl when Jenn and I were roommates in college and they were dating. There was lots of yelling and screaming then too! And that was before they had produced more of them!

And I totally agree about the permanence of marriage. Have you read This Momentary Marriage by John Piper? It addresses that well!
