On the way back from Charleston, SC, Ana and I stopped for me to do some work, and she got an informal tour of a working manufacturing plant.
Ana and Ben were able to attend the USFS Program Components Camp in Charleston, SC this weekend as a pairs team. We drove down on thursday and friday, and friday afternoon they did STARS fitness testing. Then they spent the rest of the weekend in a very intense skating camp — 10+ hours days with 5+ hours on ice and lots of off ice classes and training.
They were in a group of other pairs and dance teams – 4 teams total. They learned quite a lot and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately Ben had to leave early, so one of the expert skaters helping run the camp was kind enough to skate the show with Ana.
A nice trip to Columbus for the Rhythmic Spring Fling. It's easily the biggest rhythmic competition in the season so far, lots of competitors from all over the world. It was at the Columbus Convention Center again this year.
De competed Friday morning, and had a very nice floor routine (4th out of 12):
We enjoyed our usual Columbus meals at Culvers, and had an uneventful drive – overall a very nice trip!
