6-year-old Fiona Hodgson is a 1st grader at Oak Park Elementary School in Montgomery County. She spent time at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut, and proudly tells us she learned the entire nautical alphabet. She drew a picture of the fish and the octopus she saw during her visit.

Cassidy Deremer had a pretty cool summer vacation. She, along with mom Sarah, hiked to the top of Mount Pisgah in the Endless Mountain range near Jim Thorpe. Cassidy shared with us her smile and a picture that proves she knew the way to the top.

Steven Ferlaino is an 11-year-old who saw his summer vacation fall short. He fell off his scooter and broke his ankle. No worries, though, he still manages to enjoy the pool. And the school he will attend as a 6th grader, George W. Nebinger Elementary in South Philadelphia, has an elevator.

The Moser sisters sent us pictures of their trip to a water park in Altoona. Both of them attend schools in the Wissahickon school district.

And finally, a high tech picture from Linda Surovcik, relaxing and sunning at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. She drew us her picture on her iPad.
