Advice for a total newbie?

Ok, so yesterday I took the plunge and bought my first hockey stick. I'm 28 and have wanted to play since I was a teenager but circumstances never permitted. I have a boy who is old enough to play now and the time seemed right for both of us to start.

I picked up a wooden Sher-wood 5030 PMP with a Bouchard blade at a bargain price, honestly not sure how it compares to the rest but it feels comfortable enough and I won't feel too bad about abusing it.

Aside from noodling around and practicing my shot, what can I do to improve at a reasonable pace? What equipment should I buy next? Anything I should know before heading to the rink? Thanks for any and all suggestions!
