Deer Vs. Soccermom Van

Well, never a dull moment, let me tell you. My aunt, cousin, and dad came to visit (all on their way through Ohio to Michigan). We went to Young's for ice cream and on the way home, met a deer. Here are the pictures. The kids are fine and so is everyone else. I am so thankful my dad was here because he helped me talk to the Allstate guy in Dayton and figure out where to get it fixed. Won't it be fun to spend 5-10 days without the van? I mean, our Blazer is totally reliable and it holds all five car seats for Draycare...er... 3 car seats, maybe. Anyhow, no matter how inconvenient we are praising God that we only have to fix a van and not any people. It could have been so much worse.
Side view: The deer hit the front corner and then bounced off the passenger door.

The Allstate dude (from the good state of MI I'll have you know) said I was the 4th deer hit he'd seen today. #1 said the deer heard there is a good chance XXXXX is going to be president and the deer are committing suicide just in case. However, if he is president there will certainly be more gun control, so the deer will be even more safe! I'm using X's to protect #1's voting privacy. I'm actually really really tired of political campaigns. I'm told to vote no on 2, 4, 6, 8 yes on 3, 5, 9, maybe on 20, 40, 60 and early/often for president. Oh, don't worry. The deer can still vote...thousands of dead people have voted in Ohio in the past few weeks...I'm sure he didn't miss the deadline (no pun intended).

I'm so glad to hear that everyone is ok. Just beware, I've heard from a very reliable source that once a vehicle is fixed from a car/deer accident, it tends to attract other deer to it (just ask my dad!! He hit two last year with the same car!) Ok, I'm kidding, but I am glad to see that everyone is ok. :o)
