-> 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.

July is the summer enrollment period for the Children of Single

their homeschooling years. Children of Single Parent grants are based
on a highly selective review process, financial need, and the
availability of funds. Our grants are not intended to provide ongoing
assistance or income and are limited to one per family.
