Web Page Miles Made

Miles decided he wanted to learn about making websites, so he made his own page. You can see it here.

Latest News

We are still working on catching up on website updates. We're writing this at the beginning of 2018 remembering what was happening in the Winter/Spring of 2017.

Miles completed 8th grade during this time, which also meant he finished middle school. He had a really good finish to the year. He is a solid student, with good study habits. Although we check in on his homework and grades occasionally, he manages all of his schoolwork on his own. He took the advanced math track, which made him elegible to continue that track in high school as well as enter into biology his freshman year. He had to sign up for his high school classes in the winter of 2017, and he chose to take those more advanced classes as well as play in the freshman orchestra. He was pretty nervous about these choices - he even had trouble sleeping the night before the form was due out of concern that he was taking on too difficult a course load. We agreed, though, that he should try it, and he could always drop back if it was too much. It was interesting to see him take the high school course catalog so seriously, and show so much interest in what he would need to do to in high school to be able to get into a good college.

As an eighth grader, Miles had some more opportunities to play in higher level orchestra groups. He was invited to play in the district wide Honors orchestra - it was just a couple of rehearsals and a concert, but he played with kids from middle schools all over our district so that was neat. He also did some duets with another violinist for the school ensemble program, and one of their pieces was selected to be included in a Collage Concert performance. You can hear/watch those performances in the 13 years, 10 months gallery below. Miles also won an award at the end of the year awards ceremony for being the "Most Inspirational" member of the orchestra. He said it was mostly a popularity concert, and a lot of the 8th graders aren't nice to the younger players but he is, so that's what did it. We're pleased that he was someone others looked at as inspirational!

Miles played spring soccer again, but like past years the spring season left a little to be desired. So many kids play other sports in the spring that it's hard to get a solid team together. It turned out pretty well, though, because Miles and Micah had back to back practices at a field that is right next to an off leash dog park, and since we were gone for almost 3 hours (2 hour-long practices plus travel time) we had to bring Maple with us. So during Micah's practice, Miles and Molly would take Maple to the off leash dog park which Maple loved, and Miles loved even more. He would talk a mile a minute about dogs and training and how much he liked being at the off leash dog park.
