Jeff Foxworthy would have a field day with Coopersville, Michigan . . . especially this morning!
You've heard the stories young boys tell about how they got a bruise, a cut or any other wound. Why is it with boys, it has to be some spectacular thing that happened to them--even big boys! At Coopersville's East Elementary, 4th grader Drake is going to have a story to tell for a real long time on how he got a cut on his head! He got kicked in the head by a 6 point buck IN HIS 4TH GRADE CLASSROOM. He is completely fine, thank goodness, but this kid is going to have a story to tell until he is old. The best part is he has the proof to tell what happened. Toward the end of school yesterday, the deer crashed through a window as a 6 point buck but he left the classroom as a 3 point buck. Can you imagine how awesome it must be to this 10 year old who will have his memento for life. This is going to be a story he will be telling his grand children someday.
The kids in the classroom are all safe as the deer left almost as quickly as he came. There is plenty of glass to clean up, but the kids are going to have something to talk about for a long time. Even their teacher will have something to remember because it was her first year of teaching at Coopersville.
Ok, I have to tell you that Coopersville isn't THAT hick! This is a true story but we really do have all the regular ammenities. Things have grown so much since I was a kid. When I went to high school as a Bronco, we didn't have an Aribies, McDoanlds or Taco Bell and now we have them all plus a Burger King, Little Ceasers and several coffee cafe's. This little town has grown by leaps and bounds in the last twenty years. But it still has small town values and is an awesome community to grow up in! And . . . . it's a great place to hunt also . . .just don't do it in a fourth grade classroom!!!!
