This #turtletuesday I cant even. Today the @theislandschool caught one of the smallest turtles I have gotten to work with.

Today we celebrate Deep Creek Primary School teacher, Ms Sweeting's 47 years of service to the Ministry of Education! Today is her last day at work as she heads into a well-earned retirement. Ms Sweeting has worked tirelessly to support children in South Eleuthera and has been instrumental in guiding our Outreach programming. We could not do our work without her leadership and collaboration. Thank you for all you do, we love you! #deepcreek#southeleuthera

I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for. Because it’s not where you go. It’s how you feel for a moment in your life when you’re a part of something. And if you find that moment... it lasts forever. #pigroast2018#chippedtooth
