My name is Joelle and I'm a fish!

We definitely have a little fish on our hands.  For someone who had never seen a pool, she sure has made quite the progress in 1 1/2 months of swimming.  If the weather is nice, or even a little decent she wants in that pool!  Being able to swim consistently has definitely helped her get more and more comfortable and allowed her swimming skills to develop quickly!

Every time we get in the pool we start out with the life jacket.  It's really helped her get the form down and helped keep her fears to a minimum!  
 Then, by the end of our swimming time she's lost the jacket and is swimming on her own!

 Jared has taught her to use snorkel gear so that she won't be scared when we go to Hawaii.  She actually swims the best with the gear on! .

Here are some action videos for your viewing pleasure :)


  1. God sure has blessed you with a gem. Looks like her summer fun is only beginning. Can't imagine all of the memories and fun she will be giving you all this summer~

  3. So much fun! She really is a precious little fish. I hope you guys have a fun summer!

  4. So thrilled for you daughter! And I LOVE her name!!! ;)

  5. Happiness defines no race, nationality, color, etc. This is a definite statement that I do always believe in. This is being reflected in your photos here. You both look so happy and the girl really enjoyed the moment you have together. Our time for happiness is the best time when each one of us treats equally.
