My five-year-old is all of a sudden begging to learn and get her own skates for the sidewalk. I'm not sure what brought this on. It's the dead of winter. I never learned to skate and her dad has a blown-out ACL, so I'm not sure how we're going to pull this off, but we'll figure out something. Not in polar bear weather in the middle of the holidays, but her birthday will roll around in March, if she's old enough. What kind of price would I be looking at for a decent pair of skates. Where would I even go to look for them? Are there classes or lessons, or is it like riding a bike, where I just walk along with her and she figures it out? Other than her bike helmet, what protection would she need? She's been talking about it for a few months, so it's not like she just woke up this morning with it, but it's kind of popped up on her Christmas list, so I hinted that it might be more of a warm weather birthday thing.
