My sister is on the road right this minute with all her kids. They are headed to our house and we can’t wait! School is out today and tomorrow for parent teacher conferences, so we’re spending the day prepping for our house guests. We’re picking up some new pillows and an extra quilt. Buying their favorite snacks at the grocery store. And we’ll need some new towels as well.

My kids created a schedule of events for their cousins — hiking, open gymnastics, a movie, etc. And my sister and I will be working hard on Alt Summit. There are 8 of us and we’ll have 7 guests, which makes for a full house. Which is my very favorite kind!

What about you? What do you do to prepare for guests? Any great tips you’d like to share?

P.S. — If I was going on a roadtrip this weekend, I would wish for a gorgeous piece of luggage from Clava. My favorite is the Carina Weekender.
