I am proud to be an Arizonan because there are a lot of beautiful plants and trees. There is good soil so I can plant cacti.
I also like living in Arizona because I can go swimming. After that we have fun with my friends. I get some time to play with my swim toys. I like swimming in Arizona.
Finally, I just like to ride my bike, have picnics and go on a walk with my mom and dad. Sometimes I just like to explore the house and backyard because of all the nice weather. That is why I am proud to be an Arizonan.
