I am going to tell you some reasons I am proud to live in Arizona. One of them is because the weather doesn’t get to cold.  Another one is because there are no major storms. Also another reason is because all of the beautiful scenery.

Let’s start with the weather. The weather here is awesome. It never gets too cold in the winter. It can get a little hot in the summer, but it’s ok. That’s why everyone here has swimming pools. Also in the summer you can lay outside and tan. Everyone knows that Arizonans love to tan.

Another reason is that there are no major storms. We don’t live by the beach so we don’t have any tsunamis or hurricanes. We also don’t have any tornados because we don’t live in Kansas. We don’t have any earthquakes either. I am so glad we do not have any storms in Arizona.

Reason three. I love living in Arizona because all the beautiful scenery. The Grand Canyon is beautiful. I love visiting it. I wish I could visit the Grand Canyon everyday. The deserts are beautiful. I love all the cacti that are in Arizona. The last scenery is the mountains. I love looking at the mountains. They are so pretty. When ever I go to my grandma’s house in Thatcher I always look at the snowy beautiful mountains.

Those are my reasons why I am proud to live in Arizona. I hope you are proud too. In your free time you should really go to the Grand Canyon. Or maybe go up to the mountains. They are both very pretty. I am very proud to live in Arizona. And now you know why.
