On Monday 19 August, Matthew had the pleasure of receiving the Metro South division of the 2013 Queensland Father of the Year award. It was a surprise to be nominated, and he is very humbled to be considered among a really amazing group of great dads (see http://qldfatheroftheyear.org.au/2013-winners/).
The Queensland State winner will be announced late next week.
A huge thanks to Steph and Fiona who nominated Matthew. The kids in particular were really really excited about the occasion and were very proud.
I will post more photos if I ever win my war with my iphone, but thanks to Laura Ludwig for these photos taken on the day.
This is just fabulous – so very deserved! “Father of the Decade” sounds more appropriate though! 😉 Congratulations Matthew. xo
Congratulations – that’s wonderful!!
