We live in a busy urban city called San Diego in southern California, in the United States of America. San Diego is on the west coast next to the clear, beautiful Pacific Ocean. California shares a border with Mexico to the south, the state of Oregon to the north, and the states of Arizona and Nevada to the east. The city is very close to Mexico in fact, you can drive there in just 20 minutes from downtown.
San Diego is a very large city–it is 372.4 square miles (or 964.5 square km) wide. There are about 1.326 million people that live in the city of San Diego! We have many large shopping malls, apartments, condos, houses, stadiums, sprawling highways, theme parks like SeaWorld and Legoland, attractions like Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. We have lots of beautiful beaches too of course and most of us spend time there especially during the summer.
San Diego is located in the desert region which means it is very hot and dry. In San Diego, we have lots of canyons, mesas, mountains to the east, and miles and miles of gorgeous beaches on the coast. It is not very green compared to other places like Oregon or New Jersey. We don’t get much rain and it’s warm all year round.
Thanks for visiting our blog! We look forward to reading your comments.
Why Bloggin’ Frogs?
Why Bloggin’ Frogs you ask? It’s simple. Mrs. McKelvey’s a frog fanatic. Our classroom is filled with all sorts of frogs. Big ones, small ones, green ones, pink ones, fat ones, flat ones, fluffy ones, glass ones, and even ones that wear sunglasses. They are on the walls, on the shelves, on the cupboards, on our folders and notebooks, and in every nook and cranny here, there, and everywhere. So that’s why we are called the Bloggin’ Frogs. We love bloggin’ and we love frogs.
