This past school year the 3rd graders had to work on a state "probe." I think that's what it was called. Similar to a state report. Miles' first choice was Alaska and he thinks he was the only one who wanted that state and so he got it (his other 2 choices were Maine and Wyoming).
I think he did an excellent job and wanted to showcase it. :)
I'm sure his Uncle Derek would have given him an A+++!
