We got to work really early to pick up Sam one day so I decided to let the boys wander campus before Sam came out. I didn't realize that SLB's campus is so big and beautiful. Alex enjoyed spotting squirrels. Edison enjoyed the winding sidewalks. I enjoyed the lack of ant bites we had at the end; that is always a surprise in Texas.
We were watching this caterpillar crawl along the sidewalk when a group of workers walked by. They stopped to watch with us, and then a girl scooped up the caterpillar and put it on Alex's arm. After the group walked away, a man walked by. He saw what was on Alex's arm, flicked it off, stepped on it, and then said, "Poison!" I guess there are a lot of poisonous caterpillars. Who knew? I am glad Alex is okay. I am also glad Alex didn't see him kill it, because I think that could have been traumatizing.
