Town of Sumrall








Dalton and Gerolene Rayborn, Mayor of Sumrall

Dalton had to do a project on the Town of Sumrall. We went around town taking pics of popular places in Sumrall. We even went over to the Town Hall where Dalton managed to take a pic with the Mayor. You'll see that pic here with others from our town. We love our little country town. You'll also see a pic of Dalton holding up his project.

A whole lot of high-fiving between the team for the homerun

Dalton and I went to our very first Sumrall High School Baseball game Friday night. There has been so much "hooplah" over them. Ya see, they won 3A State Champs last season, 2008, and thusfar, are undefeated for this season...36-0.
Also, Sumrall is #4 on ESPN FAB 50!!! (check it out):

1.Bellaire (TX) 24-1
2.Foy H. Moody (TX) 24-1
3.Naples (FL) 25-0
4.Sumrall (MS) 30-0
5.West Orange (FL) 24-1
6.Jesuit (FL) 23-1
7.Calallen (TX) 27-2
8.Notre Dame Prep (AZ) 23-1
9.Brother Rice (IL) 15-0
10.Menchville (VA) 12-0

That was when we were 30-0...we are now 36-0.

Tonight, they go to the final playoff STATE game in Jackson. Go Bobcats! I've posted some pics here of the game on Friday night. We really enjoyed it. It was standing room only, except I managed to sqeeze in next to someone...it was at the end where the cheering crowd was, so it was very loud, but also very fun. Dalton hung out at the fence line right up front with some of his buddies he ran into (he's in the camo below) . It amazes me to see how much spirit this town has. Hope you enjoyed the pics.

Planting the Garden

Yesterday we came home and planted!!

Greg & Dalton planted the corn seeds a couple weeks back and they are sprouting up pretty fast. Dalton and I planted tomato plants, bell pepper plants, banana pepper plants, and watermelon plants. Greg managed to snap a few shots while we were at it.














Dalton found the wet end of the garden and decided to paint mud on his face...you'll see my "little indian" lying in the corn rows.











You'll also see Dalton here doing a raindance (under the water hose, of course)...that followed by watering things down well.













We're still not finished, we have plenty more room to plant. Greg will head out tomorrow for cantaloupe, snap beans, cucumbers, and who knows whatever else he might come across. In all, we think it's a good lesson for Dalton...to start with a dirt pile and a seed and see what it grows into...then enjoy the delicious fruit and vegetables that we grew on our own in our very own yard. He gets so tickled over it!!!
