Remembering Happy Smiles At the Rink

This photo brings back a great memory. Every Monday, the kids and I would go to Colorado College and skate and have fun. This is what skating is all about...the smiles!

Joel takes Nica Digerness Through All Three Preliminary Dances 8-19-2012

Nica Digerness took all three of her Preliminary Dances with Joel on 8-19-2012.

She came to the Colorado Springs World Arena and skated with Joel every day for a week and had ice dance lessons every day for a week with Jo Ann, who coaches ice dance at the Colorado Springs World Arena.

This came together quickly since Nica visited the World Arena for a week in June of 2012 and took some ice dance lessons with Jo Ann. She did so well at the dances, that her singles coach in Greeley, Kristin Conroy, encouraged her to come back to the World Arena and test the dances in August at the Broadmoor Skating Club.

Nica did a great job and so did Joel!

Fire and Ice 8-17-2012

Joel and Annabelle skated a clean long program for Fire and Ice on 8-17-2012. It was Joel's birthday, so that was a great gift for him too! I'm so proud of the kids. Their long program is really a difficult program.
