The following is a collection of essays fifth-grade students at Live Oak Elementary School, sharing what they did over their summer vacation.

First place
Oh my gosh! I rang the doorbell of my best friend Hannah’s house. She invited me for a sleepover. When I first got there we played Just Dance on Wii. It was really fun. Next, we started dancing with each other. We played different music on her piano to dance. Finally, it was time for bed. We decided to sleep on her trampoline outside in a tent. We lasted about two minutes in there until we saw a spider. After that, we slept inside, but still in the tent. That was a fun day.

Another thing I did over the summer was go to San Diego. First, when we went to San Diego, we drove to the wrong hotel. Luckily the hotel we were staying at was just down the street. Whew!

After we got settled, we walked around the hotel. It was cool. They had their own room to eat breakfast. The next day, we went to Sea World. There were so many cute animals! I also saw Shamu. It was so cool! I’m so glad I went there this summer.

Second place
This summer, I went to Hurricane Harbor and went down the ride Secret Passage. It felt like my stomach was still at the top of the slide when I got to the bottom. A couple of weeks after that I went to Lake San Antonio. When I was there, I went fishing. A fish bit my whole hook off, and I got mad. A month after that, I caught my first largemouth bass, it was one pound. And then, finally, I went back to school.

Third place
During summer, I visited my cousin Martin’s house for three days, went to Hurricane Harbor, I went with my friend Enrique to a swimming pool. My family and I went to Magic Mountain. We went to parties and went to the beach with my family, uncles, aunts and cousins. And last, we celebrated my birthday with cakes and video games.

This summer I went to Magic Mountain, Raging Waters, Scooter’s Jungle, bowling, the science academy, Universal Studios, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, San Diego and France. I also go to go to camp for a couple of days. I even got to go to my friend’s house for two or three days. I did fun things at camp like  tag, soccer, football, basketball, crafts, swimming, playground and field trips. I played video games for at least 2 hours each day. I hope other people had a fun summer.

During my summer vacation, I went to a Dodger game with my friends. It was so much fun. The Dodgers ended up winning. It was a great game. I also went to a friend’s house for a sleepover. Her name is Emily. When my mom picked me up, we went to the pool, and I took my other friend named Mack. We had so much fun and school comes along just to end it. I had so much fun. I also went to Magic Mountain. Then I had to go back to school a week later. Summer was fun but now I have to go back to school.

During the summer I went to Las Vegas. I went shopping, bowling, also to this band and we went to an aquarium and the casino and the movies. After that, we went to a big, huge playground then we went into a show about pirates it was fun and then we went into a rollercoaster. In the casinos, there was a Hometown Buffet. I went in there and it was good.

On my summer I really didn’t do that much. I mostly stayed home for my summer. My stepsister, on the other hand, had a great time on her vacation. First she went to Hawaii, went to a public pool, took swimming lessons in an Olympic size pool. My vacation stunk. All I did was go to a public pool and got a new video game for my vacation. So it is back to school. Goodbye  summer vacation, hello school.
First Cast Hunger

During the summer, I went to the beach. The beach was fun. My brothers and I played in the waves the whole time. When we jumped into the water, lots of salt got inside our mouths. Next we went to Castaic Lake. We brought lots of sand toys, we played with the sand toys for hours. I went to Val Verde pool for the rest of the summer and that is the end of my summer.
