Neighborhood Hospitality

With summer quickly approaching, Carla Courtney and I discuss all the challenges of neighborhood hospitality. We talk ground rules, budgeting, fun activities, and why you need a bubble machine. Carla shares ways to get your kids involved in helping, thoughts on park days and library boxes, and why you need clear TV rules. Recipes for snacks and homemade bubbles are included! We're so glad you're here!
