One of Sam's friends/classmates from Cornell has worked for SLB in Sugar Land for a year. When Sam got the job offer, he talked to Simon about what to expect here. We had Simon and his wife Elsa over for dinner and it was so fun. I met them once in Ithaca before they were married but we were at a basketball game so it wasn't very conducive to getting to know them. They are so awesome. I loved talking to them and learning about their lives and their love story.
Elsa was so great with the kids. She kept saying, "coucou (koo-koo)" to Alex which apparently is a slang version of "Hello" in French. It was really cute. She also teaches French lessons if anyone is interested! I told Elsa not to bring anything for dinner so she was sneaky and brought this beautiful bouquet! They lasted for a couple of weeks and were amazing!
