New Things to Worry About

My son is taking welding this year, and I have been more excited about it than he is.  He’s still taking the full college-bound track, just exploring some other things while they are available.  He’s artistic, and many artists use welding.  He’s thought about working as a park ranger, and park rangers are also builders, plumbers, welders, etc. to keep the buildings running.  He’s interested in taking black smithing lessons, and welding does have some tie ins.

Then he came home to tell me a couple of sparks fell on his mesh-top tennis shoes and he’s checking his feet for any burn.  We had a pair of steel-toed boots on hand he could take in to wear during class.  Taken care of.

Last night he tells me his eyes ache, and it was probably because he accidentally saw sparks in class when his shield was up.  But he closed his eyes quickly, so he should be okay.

Big sigh.

Please don’t let these things be daily.  Please let him settle in to safety methods FAST!
