Five is too early to hang up your skate dreams

Skating is a difficult sport to learn but like anything if you keep at it you will eventually fall less and glide more. That is what little Emma is hoping for this winter. This is her first year on skates and while she has quickly shifted from light green ski runs to black diamonds in less than a year, skating proves more challenging as she steps gingerly across the rink.
“I don’t like skating, Mama. I just spend the whole time crying in my helmet,” she says.
Still, she gets out there and mostly, I see a wide smile on her face. Go, Ems!
