-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.

5. 'Home School Heartbeat': Homeschooling and American Heritage Girls

What does it mean to be a "woman of integrity?" Well, if you ask the
mainstream media, becoming a woman of integrity doesn't always involve
a higher being. This week, Mike Smith and his guest, Patti Garibay,
will talk about a few ways homeschooling parents can counteract this
message and help their daughters find true self-esteem, integrity, and
significance in God.
