Since returning from Oaxaca at the beginning of August, it seems like I have been going non-stop. As I sit in Chick-fil-A and look back it’s hard to believe that it’s September 3rd. Where did August go?
It’s a good thing I have photos to look back on to help me answer this question…if not for that, I don’t know what I would do. So, as a way to maintain some sanity and to share what God has been doing I share these photos of August 2012. God is good!
Beginning of August, finished photographing Summer Camp in Oaxaca, with Adventures in Life. Taking portraits of cute little kids and some not so little kids….I got to spend some time with family, always a blessing. We came together to celebrate my youngest niece Olivia’s 9th Birthday.

In August I started looking through and uploading on Facebook old photos from the archives. Photos are great reminders of what God has done in the past and a way of showing those who came before us. This photo is from a 2003 Rock Church baptism at Mariner’s Point, Mission Bay.I love this photo. Pete Giordano took this photo at one of the first Rock Baptisms, Mariners Point, I believe in 2001. He is a great photographer who loves black & white film. The photo speaks for itself.
August 16th, the Rock Academy started school. I have had the privilege of photographing at the Academy for several years now…I watched a few kids graduate this past May that I have known since they were in elementary school. It’s always fun to see the new faces as well as the familiar ones, in expectation…Blessings on the Rock Academy for a great school year!
My friends kids, Valeria, Veronica and Diego. It was their first day at their new school…August 18th, taking photos in San Marcos at Knob Hill Elementary. Rock Church North County was there to help beautify the campus…over 150 folks came out that day. That afternoon, Warriors Indoor Club Soccer…Photos are from the 18th and 25th.Rock North County had a Marriage “Date Night” on August 24th. They asked us to document the evening and take portraits of the happy couples…Rock North County Baptism, August 27th at Carlsbad Lagoon. A great place to declare your faith in Jesus publicly…August 31st, Friday night lights. Rock Academy Football team had their season opener versus Capistrano Valley Christian. It was a close game but in the 2nd half Capo Valley pulled away winning 35-21.August was busy, but after looking through several thousand photos I can’t complain. I get to use my gifts to serve Jesus and bless others! Hopefully September does’t go as fast…
Rock Academy Lady Warriors Soccer team came from behind to tie the game late in the 2nd half vs. Tri City Christian. The Warriors were down by 1 goal…Kalissa took the corner kick and placed the ball perfectly for Alexis to head the ball into the net. To see the sequence of this goal please go HERE.
The game would end tied at 1-1, and went into extra time “golden goal!” Extra time ended with nobody scoring.
Penalty Kicks to determine who would move on to the 2nd round…
1 blocked kick is all it takes…Warriors win 4-2 on kicks to move on to 2nd round of CIF Div 5 playoffs. Warriors would lose in the next round to eventual Div 5 CIF Champions Horizon Panthers.
You can see all the penalty kick photos HERE.
Congratulations Warriors on a great season!
The Rock Academy Warriors battled to the end but came up a few points short in their first San Diego DIV 5 CIF Basketball Championship appearance, losing 36-44 to Foothills Christian.
CIF Championships were held at USD’s Jenny Craig Pavilion (aka the Slim Gym). The Warriors were well represented in the stands, cheering on their class mates on the court.
Congratulations Rock Academy Warriors on a great run!
Let’s hope for a good draw in the CIF State playoffs…Go Warriors!!
The Rock Academy will be playing in their first CIF Basketball Championship this Friday at USD, 4PM.
These are just a few photos of their journey to the championships…They had to defeat Warner Springs, Calvary Christian and Vincent Memorial along the way. The no 2 seed Warriors will be facing the no 1 seed Foothill Christian Knights for the Division 5 Championships. Go Warriors!Rock Academy Cheer Team, encouraging the Warriors on to victory!Warrior pride!
