Freshman Trip Day
The ninth grade boys spent Thursday out and about on their “Trip Day.” After Gemara shiur they left for Gol Soccer Center (I spelled it correctly). They broke into four teams. The Blue team won the championship game.
After a quick lunch and Mincha, we went to Off the Wall in Woodland Hills for games, climbing and more fun.
From there we left for the 1 1/2 hour ride (having so much fun takes a lot of effort) to Crypto.com Arena for dinner and a Clippers game. We arrived early enough to watch the players warm-up and to get a picture on the court.
