I still don’t know what I’m going to choose as my topic for the essay Mr. Wilson asked us to write about ancient Egypt. Everyone knows about the pyramids and camels. Avery said that I must write my essay on Egyptian clothing. I got a book on Egyptian clothing from the library and found out that the men in those days also wore eye make-up, just like the women. Everyone believed makeup had magical powers. I wanted to write this all down in my notes tonight but Lindi hasn’t finished decorating my pencils. I’m very excited because I love the beads and feathers she glues to them. Maybe she will give them to me tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
