Cameron practice driving

Cameron did some practice driving with Derrik last weekend.  They went to empty parking lots and let him practice in the van.  He did pretty well!  He did mention that it is a lot harder than it looks.

Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary

Mom and Dad Hubbard celebrated 50 years of marriage last weekend!  We threw them a great party filled with friends and lots of memories.  The highlight might have been the video with old photos and portions of audio from their wedding ceremony!  We loved celebrating with them!


The boys were part of my decorating crew






We found Ashton passed out after we got home from the party

Kickball Game

Last Friday was the annual 6th grade student vs parent kickball game!  Derrik came out to play and Cameron and I took photos and cheered.  The kids won by 2 points!

Memorial Day Hike

We went up to Placerita Canyon and did a little hiking.  It's been a couple years since we all went out for a hike and had a great time!







We found the site where Cameron's band teacher, Mr. Bennett, was
struck on his bicycle a year ago.  A white bicycle is parked at the spot.

Ethan's Performance at Wolf Creek

Ethan connected with a few guys from local bands and found himself invited to be the opener for two bands at a local restaurant.  He did great!  He sang his songs for about 30 minutes playing the acoustic guitar, electric guitar and the keyboard.  This may be the first of many shows for him!

















Santa Clarita Elementary Open House

Thursday was Open House at the school.  I had my classroom open and we got a chance to see some of Ashton's work from the school year.
Ethan came and helped me with setup and mood music.  :)



Ethan and Cameron lead a drum circle for me

Graduation

Ethan wore both a choir and band pin on his graduation robe and grabbed cords for participating in music.  He sang with the choir during the ceremony and also accompanied a choir friend on guitar in a special number.  It was a magical night and we're all so proud of Ethan!
Cameron played with the band

Funniest part of the ceremony was Ethan running
to do the special number from his seat
