Mills Mountain Lion

Xander started kindergarten today, where he is now a "Mills Mountain Lion". He was very excited to be going. His parents, however, have a higher level of angst.

After watching his teacher, Ms. Hamill, walk the kids out of the gymnasium to class, we went to the cafeteria and the nurse to talk about his milk allergy issues. The nurse was all over it, but the cafeteria manager was less responsive.

Duncan started in his new junior pre-K class with Ms. Carmen today, as well.

Xander had a great day, he tells us. He's looking forward to buying his lunch at the cafeteria tomorrow.

Handprints at Cafe Monet

We went to Cafe Monet today to paint some pottery and the owner, Jules, helped us with the obligatory hand prints. The boys enjoyed painting a penguin and a robot.

We've been going there for years, and it's nice to support a local business. They even started selling gluten-free cookies for people with gluten intolerances like ceoliac disease.

We went to The Nature Center at Zilker Park this past weekend. It was really neat to see all the bones and bugs. The boys got to look at bugs under a microscope, see a coyote up close, and dig up dinosaur bones.
