Welcome to the monthly numbers link up! February was a busy month and all the going-ons have pushed me into a retreat of sorts as we start off March. I took a moment today to look back at my Feb 2015 Numbers post...(here) - it's interesting to see how things have changed, but nothing has changed at the same time?
For the kids:
2 days of Basketball with it finishing off for the season.
They also had 3 piano lessons each along with a piano party where they performed a quartet with Kinsey and another friend. 4 hands, 2 pianos...pretty darn cool! The kids rehearsed at my old school where the other girl's mom is a teacher friend of mine there- we got to play around in the band room with my other band teacher friend and the kids loved trying out various loud instruments. Bless those band teachers' hearts.

They also both started 1 new activity, now that basketball is done: Lucia will be doing gymnastics and Willis will keep busy with parkour. Willis also got to participate in his first school sport- track...he amazed us with his running..check him out in the green shorts and yellow jersey.
We took 2 trips in February, one was planned, one wasn't. Dan and I took a last minute trip to London. He had some meetings there, Grandparents were available to watch the kids, so it was perfect. I bought 1 jacket which exceeded my spending allowance for the month and as penitence, I shan't buy anything in March. I loved our little trip and did some fun exploring (you can read my London posts here)
We also spent 3 days in Winnipeg during the Feb. break...we loved spending time with family and friends. You can read that post (here)
Other fun things that went down last month was having 24 of the 28 days with company at our place. Okay, that number might have been a stretch but we seriously had company for most of the month. This was also the month that we saw the most of Uncle Josh since he lived with us, doing that little start up thing in our basement. Our kids loved getting time with their uncle.
I had two "procedures" done in February: I had laser surgery on my eyes and my eyebrows microbladed
Lastly it was a brilliant month with friends: I planned 1 splurge event themed "favourite things" where I made the girls do a workout at OrangeTheory with me and then we went to a resto and exchanged gifts with our favourite things for under 30$! We also hosted a girls' night at my place and I made them a nice meal and Alynne did a "how to budget" presentation. I love my friends.
It was a wonderful, busy month and I had so many other things I wanted to report but everything was skewed because of all the travel - so I'll be back to those next month. For now, check out these great posts of numbers too!
