Where We now live

 We are now living in a house instead of staying with friends. I have got my own room with a double bed,desk,bedside table, and a cupboard. It is a nice house and we have to look after about 8 sheep,and two chickens. It is not bad considering we were staying with 50 something chickens, 20 alpaca, a turkey, a dog, and two cats! It was fun but tiring staying where we were staying and I am glad we now are living somewhere else. Yesterday we went and saw our second cousins. We had lunch and then we all played sardines. Then me and the older two cousins played Cludo. We also printed out some pictures for my river project. We had a great weekend and today we are going to clean and go to Waitrose. We are also going to speak to our friends in San Francisco.

My life at the moment

Now that I am in Y6 everybody just talks about boys. These are some frequently asked questions:

Who do you like? 

Would you rather date _______ or _______?

Do you like __________ or ___________?

And it is all driving me MAD!

And there are lots of girls fighting so right now my brain wont function properly.
And I am panicking that my river project wont be finished in time.


I HATE my life!

But at least swimming lessons at school end next week!(YAY)

More On the Colorado River

Here is some more on the Colorado River:

The headwaters of the Colorado River begin at La Padre Pass Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The elevation of this lake is approximately 9,000 feet (2,750 m). This is a significant point in the geography of the United States because it is where the Continental Divide meets the Colorado River drainage basin.

At La Padre Pass Lake the beginning of a big river starts.

Here is a poem about this river at its start.

I see a little stream run out this lake,
I follow it,
Slowly it gets bigger and bigger
It goes down slopes and through many places
But I never knew that this stream was a river,
A river that is one of the most famous in the USA
But when I found out I followed it
All the way to the Ocean.

This river is famous for many reasons but when you go to La Padre Pass Lake you see the beginning of a huge and famous river. The Colorado begins it's flow south westward toward the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean. By the time the river enters the Grand Canyon, at Lee's Ferry, its altitude has fallen to 3,110 feet, dropping over one mile since its beginning. The river will drop another 2,200 feet before it reaches the other end of the Grand Canyon, the Grand Wash Cliffs, 277 miles away.

The Colorado River

As a project for school we have to study a river. We got to pick the river and then write a project on it. I picked the Colorado River. I wrote an intro and have done the front cover. Today I wrote some of the basic information. I wrote:

The Colorado River

The Colorado River is located in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California. It is the principal river of the south-western United States and north-western Mexico. It is 1450 miles long (2330 km). It starts in Colorado and ends in Baja California (Mexico). This river supplies more that 2.5 million people water and irrigates 3.5 million acres of farm land. This river eroded the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is located in Arizona and is one of the biggest tourist sites in the world. Many people go and see this wonderful place watching the river flow by. But there are many other places other than the Grand Canyon of course!This river has many tributaries which are: Gila River, Colorado River Aqueduct, Virgin River, Little River, San Juan River, and the Green River. If you would like to know more about this river then read on!
