First Day of School 2009

First day of senior year for Angelica and Jennifer and 6th grade orientation for Matthew (he begins his middle school career tomorrow).
This is what the fire looked like from our house last night and this is what the sunrise looked like this morning - LOTS of smoke and ash.

Catalina Island Getaway

A Catalina Island camping adventure for 3 Hubbards (Angelica and Jennifer are at band camp for the week and David is in Florida at college).
Doug and Matthew pushing our camping gear off the boat and toward the campground (thankfully a truck took our gear to the campground while we hiked up the mountain).
Our campsite for the week - so beautiful!!!!!! = - )
View of the sunset from our campsite.
Matthew spent LOTS of time in the COLD ocean water and even made a new friend.
We had such a BEAUTIFUL view!

Sunset on our last night.

Time to go back home after a wonderful, relaxing and fun vacation.
Back to the city and a busy life again.

The College Years Begin

Breakfast at Denny's and then the drive to the airport.
Matthew is going to miss David and so will his friends who are also beginning their college years.
Oops, too much weight...thankfully he was able to move some clothes into the carry on bag.
There we go - 50 pounds is the limit.
Time to say good-bye! David is off to Southeastern in Lakeland, Florida (my alma mater). Blessings! = - )
