Rock the bump.....

I had a call from one of my ex-students last week letting me know she was pregnant. I taught Jody when she was in Year 8 at Pinjarra SHS and we have managed to keep in touch since she left school through all my new schools and moves. I was invited to her wedding last year and every now and then we catch up for lunch or a coffee. She is now in her late 20's and is an awesome young woman and I am thankful to call myself one of her friends. Its kind of funny and wonderful how relationships can change - Jody was a great kid when I taught her, the sort you remember as she always tried hard and was friendly and thoughtful. She always greeted teachers out in the yard and went out of her way to be helpful. After she left school to work in childcare she dropped back regulary to visit and one coffee led to a lunch and more coffees and now I consider her one of my friends. When she rang to tell me she had just found out she was pregnant I was so excited and happy for her - this card is for Jody! I've used the sketch over at My Favorite things and the Colours from The Play Date Cafe.
