God, family and the Green Bay Packers

We celebrated Vince Lombardi’s famous quote last night in the best way we know how.

“There are three things that are important to every man in this locker room,” he said. “His God, his family, and the Green Bay Packers. In that order.”

Last night we took advantage of the last preseason game to thank God for the opportunity to hang with our family and cheer for our beloved Green Bay Packers.

We’ve been using the last home preseason game for family reunions and this year’s game against the Rams took on extra significance as Katherine left this morning for her new home in LA. Fall can bring melancholy times to families as school begins, students leave home for college and the air cools and hints of the coming winter.

The older we get, the more we appreciate the opportunity to spend time together.

We’re all looking forward to an exciting season on the field and in our lives and, from my family to yours, we hope to see you at Lambeau this year.

Go Pack Go!

Molly came home from college for a night to hang out with her sister and me. We loved it (and props to the biking photo bomber in the left corner of the picture.)
I’ve got all my sisters and me (plus my daughters, my mom and my sweet niece Erin).
My mom BAKED A CAKE for the occasion (which was a combined celebration of the Packer game, Katherine’s going away and my sister Kathy’s upcoming birthday.)
We were thrilled to see my college roommate and friend-for-life Trish, her daughter Heidi (my daughter Katherine’s lifelong friend) and her daughter Ruby (my daughter Molly’s lifelong friend) join the family-themed celebration. Trish and I used to watch Packer games in the O’Donnell Hall living room or at County Stadium. Go Pack Go!
A really nice usher took a family picture of my brother, my mom, my sisters, my niece and me.
But, we had a whole crew at the game. “Back to football!”
Vince took this shot of the Biskupic/Kostelnik crew. Such fun!
The nicest nieces (Erin has her game face on). (This picture is from 2012).
