Visit from Mark Webb

This week we enjoyed a short visit from Mark Webb, a friend from Perth. Mark is the Chief Executive Officer of Botanic Parks and Gardens Authority in Western Australia, and he and Craig served together on the board of Kingsway Christian College.

This is a local Vietnamese restaurant. (Yes, Carla and Lauren, those are real nems complete with lettuce and dipping sauce! Drool away...)

Before he arrived, the children were convinced that it was actually Mark Webber who would be visiting us.

Although the kids were slightly disappointed that Mr Webb-not-Webber had never raced a car in his life, Mark soon won Tirzah over by reading "Going on a Bear Hunt" to her.

He won Keegan over by discussing Australian sport / cricket at length.

And Mark won Jemilla over by leaving a box of Häagen-Dazs ice-cream in the freezer.

It was a shame that it was just a flying visit from Mark, as he has such a gift of encouragement. We loved having him here!
