KC's Going to Egypt







KC is going to Egypt!






Don't let her go - said my friends from The Big Bike Ride.

It's dangerous, they said.








But they don't know KC.








She's stubborn

intelligent

and

independent




And she has been studying hieroglyphics

- on her own -

since high school.




She says her love of Egypt

started as a child

when Al taught her summer school.




Her room is full of Egypt...







...her favorite book...







...an Egyptian dagger...





...and from Penrod...

an Egyptian story board.



This one tells the life of a cat.




It says if you care for a cat in this life...

He will take care of you in the afterlife.





I think Tom will have a good afterlife.







KC has had a life of adventure...

She has biked the coast of Ireland

with her Mom...





....met a monkey

in the wilds of Peru...








...wrestled with Aaron

in the calms

of Wisconsin...







and fallen out of her kayak

into the dark waters

of the Everglades

at night.









KC now studies Arabic

at ASU...






...and reads Nefretiti

for fun.






And in January

- the day before her 20th birthday -

KC will fly to Egypt...








...her life long dream.
