May 12 is Becoming a Very Special Day

…at least from my perspective. A year ago was one of my most intense and satisfying days from a work perspective, when Jesse and Amy Carlsen’s twin daughters, Abby and Belle, became formerly conjoined.

Yesterday, on the one-year anniversary of that big day, we had a couple of great family events: my brother, Mark, and my son, Jake, both graduated from college, as did my sister-in-law, April.

Mark was selected as one of the student speakers at the Concordia University (St. Paul) commencement at 9:30 a.m., where he and April received their diplomas. Jake’s graduation was at 6 p.m. in LaCrosse.

Our whole family is very proud of all three of them; it’s pretty special to have three family members get college degrees on the same day, and for me to have a brother and son both graduating was a “burst your buttons” event.

I’ll be posting some video from yesterday’s events soon. These last two May 12ths are days I will never forget.
