He Skates, He Shoots, He Scores!!

Remember as a kid how incredible it felt putting on your skates at the beginning of the season.  The excitement you felt in your belly, anticipating those first few steps out onto the ice.  You could feel the chill in the air, maybe see your breath rise up against the sky.

You pulled the laces tight. Real tight.  Sometimes so tight your fingers hurt or the circulation cut off in your feet.  It didn't matter though, it was all worth it.  Those first couple steps out onto the ice.  That was the best because suddenly you were flying without having to leave the ground.  That is some great stuff for kids.  If you have the chance, make sure the kids try some skating.  They tend to be quite fearless and often, they love it.  Great way for the kids to have a great time together as well, away from all those hand held devices.

Who knows, your kid might be the next Gretzky or Kwon or Spicoli.  See you out there.
