Izzy has a ducky who was made out of clay. He was dry and ready years ago but his blog debut is today! Izzy painted Ceramic Ducky in lots of different shades but this heavy ducky doesn’t float – he barely even wades. Ceramic Ducky lives in a world full of ducky friends but he hasn’t seen them lately. It seems like Covid never ends. We all miss doing the things like playing in the park and lately we’re all feeling like the world is pretty dark. But look! Ceramic Ducky is staying colorful and shiny! He doesn’t let corona virus make him get all whiny. Ceramic Ducky knows it won’t always be so crappy so for now he thinks of all the reasons to be happy. We’re happy for each other and the time we’re stuck together And covid shows us that there’s nothing we can’t weather.
Quack, quack, shoot ’em up destiny Quack, quack, shoot ’em up to the moon Quack, quack, shoot ’em up one, two, three He wanted to be a spaceduck, that’s what he wanted to be. But now that he’s a spaceduck he doesn’t feel as free. Hey, Mother Goose, won’t’cha bring him back down safely to the sea? Around and around and around and around is not where he wants to be. He wanted to make a good run. He wanted to go to the moon. He knew that it had to be fun. He told ’em to send him real soon. He wanted to be a spaceduck, he wanted to be it so bad. But now that he’s a spaceduck he’d rather be back on the lilypad. Hey, Mother Earth, won’t’cha bring him back down safely to the sea? Around and around and around and around is just a lot of lunacy.
This is not Claire’s blue water duck. This duck has an orange beak, like most ducks. Claire’s water duck is all blue, with a blue beak! Wow! Maybe a duck like that will join our team someday.
Claire’s water duck? Every day, it’s going to be in water. And when snow melts it turns into water. Every day, Claire’s water duck goes “Oh no! It’s time to get back in the pool! Woohoo!” And it jumps into the water.
It ain’t easy being pink. Naw, it’s harder than you think. Everybody wants to know: where’d the other colors go? Folks love blue and red and green, but when they see pink, they’re mean. They mean to be enlightened, and yet, pink will see them frightened! They don’t want pink on their boat. They don’t want a pink goat. They don’t want pink in the rain or on their car, or on a train. So this duck is not in luck. For pink is all she’s ever been and pink is all she’ll ever be. Or maybe she’s the luckiest because she feels the duckiest when she looks in mirrors. She’s likes how she appears. She loves pink and she loves herself. And that is great for ducky’s health.
Inflatable Ducky had a great week at camp! Please try not to notice if his eyes are damp.
He dressed up in green. His clothes were quite clean! This share is so keen. His kvutsah is not mean. At Galil, he always feels loved, accepted and seen!
At breakfast chug, he made French toast but ducky liked rainbow pancakes the most.
Zoom protests are cool. The Mini Mo drools! He needs to take a shower before going back to school.
In green chug, we made a memory book (it’s special to ducky, he likes the look). This summer has taught us that secrets in Zoom should never be shared outside the breakout room.
This ducky is filled with both joy and sorrow — how can there be no Galil at Home tomorrow? It was ducky’s first time at camp this summer. Not being there in person was such a bummer! But ducky had fun at every Zoom call and he can’t wait for Galil at Home this Fall!
Hello my name is Ducky Izzy. My week was super fun and busy. It ain’t easy being green. Eggs and yams on Monday morning. Breakfast club is how I lean. Eggs and sammies Tuesday morning. Wednesday morning? Pickle corning. On Thursday we received a warning: mug cake can be habit forming. Tuesday night was games (no lesson) On Thursday night court was in session! I met a bunch of fun Israelis, who I would like to talk to daily. I made friends in chalutzimot (they’re the duckies in my boat). I learned a lot of stuff this week. Thanks for listening to me squeak. This week was really fun, you see — it is easy being me!
GO PURPLE DRAGONS! I have a U on my green belly because I’m a Bud Duck. I have spikes on my back because I’m a dragon. Do you want to play baseball with me? Watch out for my spikes! Ouch! I’m pink and have purples scales because I’m not a typical dragon. But don’t forget I have a green tummy.
