Jamboree: Day 1 & Early Morning of Day 2

Today has been a beyond wonderful day.   Words can truly not describe it.  Last night I could barely sleep from all the excitement and today still turned out better than my wildest dreams.

I graduated at 4 P.M today with my Associates Degree in Liberal Studies.  Then I had a FANTASTIC time with my boyfriend (who is an absolute sweetheart and a wonderful man) and my family.  We took lots of pictures and then went to dinner.  We ate a fabulous meal and then I went with my Aunt and Uncle to Burbank.

I walked in the lobby and was so happy to see everyone.  Then Tami Glatz surprised me with the best gift ever: a book with signatures from all of the my genea-buddies.  I almost burst into tears I was so happy.  It was amazing.  I love it.  To everyone that signed it: I love you.  You guys always believe in me and support me and I wish I could find the words to thank you.  Tami – this book is AMAZING and thank you so much for it.

It was hard to get to bed.  I am so tired from such a long day but so happy and excited that I just can’t sleep.  I suddenly feel like a little kid again.  It doesn’t help that now it is Saturday morning and I woke up really early.  The moment I opened my eyes I was awake.  I am just so excited for today.  It is really early and only a few genealogists are walking down to the library – and most of them are the ones going to the FamilySearch breakfast.

Note: I’m publishing my Jamboree posts without much proofreading but that is because I want to share the information in the quickest way possible (and because it isn’t even 7 AM yet!).  I do plan on editing these posts when I get home and have had a chance to let my sleep recover.
