San Xavier Mission

dsc_2326cThe kids an I went on a short trip just down the road to San Xavier, a mission church built in 1797. We took a tour (by donation only) with a docent who told us all about the church, from the founding saints to the methods of construction.
According to their website, San Xavier is a National Historic dsc_2348cLandmark, founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church’s interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 18th Century space. The church retains its original purpose of ministering to the religious needs of its parishioners.
If you are interested in taking a tour, the details can be found here.

Tucson Light Parade

Whoa! It’s seriously been since September since I last posted? My goodness! Being a teacher has really changed my day-to-day life, but in an awesome way! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Here are a few photos I took at a light parade in Tucson, AZ last weekend. Merry Christmas to you all!dsc_1512c dsc_1538c dsc_1540c

Young Love

Wow! Has it really been a month since I’ve last posted here? As a quick fill in, I’ve accepted a position as a history teacher at Desert Christian High School in Tucson, AZ and am super pumped about it! That said, preparing to be a teacher is a consuming task and I’ve been lost in thoughts of how to be the very best teacher I can be rather than in how to best compose my next image. Also, I went on a two-week vacation this summer which included three national parks, the beach and a family reunion. I’ve been busy, to say the least. With that, here’s a photo I took at Mission Beach in CA. Ahhhh, young love!DSC_6603c
