About Me

Hi!  Welcome to Hope Is the Word, my blog in which I review the books I read, as well as record as thoughts on home education, parenting, and living a bookish life.  My name is Amy, and I am married to Steady Eddie.  We have two girls:  Lulu, born 5/04, and Louise, born 11/05.  We have two boys:  the DLM (Dear Little Man), born 6/10, and Benny, born 4/13.  I am a teacher and librarian turned stay-at-home, home-educating mother.  You may contact me by leaving a comment on my blog or by emailing me at hopeistheword (at) gmail (dot) com.

Hope Is the Word is the home of Read Aloud Thursday, which is a monthly meme in which bloggers share their families’ read-alouds of the month.  It happens here on the fourth Thursday of each month.   I’d love for you to join us some time!
