Today was an excellent and full day here at Talpiot. Right after davening ended, boy the children and the volunteers loaded the buses to go to the pool. The pool was a great time; we played volleyball in the water, put kids on our shoulders and just hung out with our mishpachtonim.
When we get back from the pool, the Americans headed straight to the art room to prepare for the World Cup, which had its opening ceremony yesterday and will conclude on wednsday. This entailed of painting flags for each mishpachton, and making a scoreboard, among many other things.
Later in the day, the World Cup finally kicked off, and smiles were everywhere. The kids were so excited to finally play a game of organized soccer, instead of just kicking the ball around with some friends.
I am looking forward to another great day at Talpiot tommorow.
