Each day is a blessing for Sjogren family
by BRYAN ZOLLMAN
When Josh and Melissa Sjogren were high school sweethearts they decided they wanted to have four children when they got married. On Sept. 19, Melissa gave birth to their seventh.
“I always tell people we are overachievers,” said Melissa.
The Sjogrens are the proud parents of Sam, 15; Macoy, 13; William, 11; Evelyn, 9; Cecilia, 7; Addison, 6; and Sylvia, who was born Sept. 19 and is three months old. Josh, 38, works for Stearns Electric while Melissa, 37, is a stay-at-home mom who works occasionally as a wedding photographer.
They both graduated from Farmington High School and eventually resided in Sauk Centre before recently moving to Lake Sylvia in rural Melrose.
