The Herald-Mail asked Bobbi Blubaugh's fifth-grade students at Fairview Elementary School in Waynesboro, Pa., to write essays about what they did on their summer vacation. Here are their largely unedited responses.

The day after school got out I went to the beach. The weather was very nice at first but later in the week the waves got very choppy and it was cool. I also went to camp this summer. The camp was called Rhodes Grove. That is what I did this summer.

This summer my baseball team and I went to Philadelphia for a state tournement. Even though we had a losing record we had a fun time. We not only played baseball we got to see Philadelphia. The first day we had a skills competition and a home-run derby. Over the next two days we played four ball games, went to the Schuylkill river with five friends, and went to the King of Prussia Mall. When we were leaving there was a small fire, luckily everyone was alright. That sums up my time at Philadelphia.
