Where has the time gone? I

Figure Skating

Hard to believe my last post was so long ago! Where did summer go? We’ve been getting back into a school routine so that’s part of the blog silence. The other part is…life is crazy at times. Feels like I blinked and summer was gone!

I’ll be posting some back vids and pics but this is the latest and greatest. I shared on my personal page and neglected to share here!! This is from Friday… Keara is currently getting ready for the 2019 Upper Great Lakes Regionals in Peoria IL Oct 3-7 2018.

Got the best text today from Keara’s coach! Gotta love the spontaneous ones 😂 she landed double loop and double flip!! Only doubles left are 2 Lutz, 2 axel!!

This week Kiki is spending time training in Colorado Springs! She will be spending many hours on the ice training with some of the best coaches at the World Arena Olympic training site.

I want to start off by thanking 2 businesses that have supported Keara and have helped to get her to this week. Thank you Peak Heating and Cooling and Precision Steel Rule Die! Without your support this wouldn’t have been possible!

Here is a mini example of her day:

5:30am arrive at arena

Sound like a fun day? Keara things so! She’d actually LOVE to do this more often!

World Showcase Ice Show

Figure Skating

This past weekend Keara had the opportunity to skate in Maple Grove’s 18th Annual Ice Show. She had a group number and a solo performance. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and 1 out of 2 shows were cancelled on Saturday. However I was able to get a video of Friday nights rehearsal of her solo.

Even though the performances were cut short she had a great time hanging out with fellow skaters in the locker room. Her younger sister’s large Dream Duffel dance bag was a hit! Room for others to hang their costumes and carry everything we needed in one bag; skates and all. Now she wants her own Dream Duffel. However I’m pretty sure she doesn’t need a large one. So thanks Dream Duffel! The bag was a hit among fellow skaters!
