When Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge, they felt embarrassed that they were naked. God felt sorry for them so He sacrificed an animal, so that they could have some clothes to wear. We know that Jesus is the ultimate sacrifice because He sacrificed His life for us.

Vicki would train and race, she would get a placing in most events. She would be calm and patient with the horses and even if she fell off them, she would still get back on and ride them. One time, she dislocated her should and she hung from the rafters to put it back. She is calm and tough.
The most recent thing Vicki and her sisters have done was save New Zealand's wild horses, the Kaimanawa horses, on the Kaimanawa hill range on the Central Plateau. They filmed what they did. Amanda was in charge of filming, Kelly job was taking photos and writing the book.
The sisters had to all train and compete in the first ever Kaimaniwa event. They had 80 days to turn wild horses into being able to be ridden and compete. Vicki came second and last in this event, the other two sisters placed as well.
I like Vicki, because she is the oldest, the boss of things and she is strong. She is really good at training horses and even if a horse bucks her off, she gets back on and keeps going.
I have the book For the Love of Horses. I really recomend this book because it goes back to when they were young and less fortunate than us and now they have become professional horse riders. It is $45 from Paper Plus.
2. The name ‘Viking means ‘a pirate raid’ in the Old Norse language.
3. Around 500 years before Christopher Columbus ‘discovered’ the American continent, Vikings had visited its shores, landing in what is now Canada in around AD 1000.
4. Among the many gods Vikings believed in were Thor, the god of thunder, and Loki, a cheeky mischief-maker who could shape-shift to become all different kinds of animals. What a beast!
5. The Vikings were expert boat builders and sailors. Keels – central spines along boats’ bottoms – made their 16 to 37m ‘longboats’ easy to steer, and because these were designed to float high in the water, landing on beaches was easy.
6. The Vikings were eco-pioneers – sort of! The ‘long houses’ where families lived would have turf roofs to help keep in the heat.
7. Fenrir Grayback, the werewolf in the Harry Potter books, was named after a ferocious giant wolf from ancient Viking mythology.
8. When important Vikings died, they would be placed with all their clothes, jewellery, even their animals, in a burial ship. This would either be covered with a huge mound of earth or set alight and pushed out to sea.
9. Bitter Scandinavian winters and frozen fjords didn’t stop the Vikings from tucking into their favourite food – fish! During warmer months they would hang up and dry fish to eat later.
10. Ever wondered where the word ‘berserk’ comes from? ‘Berserkers’ was the name of some terrifying Viking warriors who wore bear or wolf skins and howled in battle like wild animals!

On Tuseday this week it was my birthday. I turned eleven and I got heaps of presents like: For The Love Of Horse, a runing tee-shirt, Sharpies, water colour pencils and a trip to Melbourne to see Taylor Swift. (She had to put on another show because it was so popular.)
On Wednesday I got my ears periced. I got them because I learnt all my times tables. They did not hurt. I got these silver balls. I have to put this oil around my ear pierce, so it doesn't get infected.
On Thursday I got baptised in front of the whole school. My Mum and Dad were there and my God parents are Miss Huls and Anna Martin. I felt special, because I did it with the school. I got a present from Miss Huls and it was a necklace with a cross on it. I got a candle, another cross neackless and a certificate. I left the oils on my head for the whole day because they smell so good.
