Ana and Jenya skated this weekend at Keystone State Games in York, PA. Both Ana and I had a fairly nasty head cold the entire time, but Ana did a wonderful job of skating through it and did quite well.
De's gymnastics meet this weekend (Cloud 9.0 Invitational) went great! She got 1st place on floor (8.6), 2nd on beam (8.5), 3rd on bars (7.75), 3rd on vault (9.0), and 2nd all-around. She was ecstatic! She did a wonderful job, too. Really cool.
Alexey Mishin, coach of Plushenko (2nd in last year’s olympics) and other top-tier skaters, visited RMU today. Jenya got a chance to participate in a group lesson with him, with two other girls who are also working on their axels. Very cool!
