We love our community school!

We missed the meet your teacher night this year because the girl had her very first ballet class that evening – but we already know Ms. Wolfmueller anyway.  We are there every day after all, I’m a classroom volunteer, so hang out with the kids and Amanda on Thursdays.  So when we showed up for school on Wednesday, we were given a lovely little gift bag all the families received the night before.

The effort that was put into these gift bags just further demonstrates why we love our school.  Such thoughtful gifts for us to share, and completely unexpected and appreciated:

A hand stamped gift bag, a recipe for apple muffins, an apple with a poem tied onto it, a notepad, and a magnet with the school’s contact information.

We really do love the girl’s school.  We started kid-kid there because we loved their pre-k program, Rhonda and Tracy are amazing, and the kids all adore them.  But we continued there because of the real sense of community and belonging found throughout the school.

There are kids from all sorts of families, it’s a wonderfully diverse student body. Diversity is both celebrated and embraced in such a lovely way.  The school participates in the Day of Pink, and I plan to encourage participation in Wear Purple day this year too.  The administration team is fabulous, and well…  we really do love Mayfair Community School.

Parents are teachers too.

 

Roo Watch 2012:  Roo has been cool, calm and collected.  No signs of early labour.  She’s due on the 29th… so far so good.  🙂

Being nice goes a long way…

Trust me!  Being thoughtful, and nice to your photographer goes a really long way.

We don’t expect it.

We deal with so many folks who treat us like it’s an inconvenience for them to have to deal with us, like we are taking their time away from so many more worthwhile things they could be doing.  After all, we’re just “the help“.

Forget that we are the expert aforementioned clients had to search out and hire for said expertise…  because… well…  that apparently makes no difference.  😉

So when you are not only polite and friendly, but actually do something kind and generous – like bringing along cool drinks not just for yourselves but for us too?  It honestly knocks us on our butts and just makes us want to create all the more spectacular images for you.  LOL  So yeah!  Be nice.  🙂  It goes a long way.

And a big thank you to this evenings clients, Jen and Martin, for inspiring this blog post with their lovely (and refreshingly cool) gesture.  🙂  It was very much appreciated.
