    105-year-old Woman Invited to Register for Preschool

    Funny story!

    It's not unheard of for senior citizens to go back to school post-retirement, but usually they take courses at universities or colleges - not elementary schools.

    105-year-old Anna Eriksson was invited to register for preschool at the Central School in Tierp, Sweden this month, along a group of more than 60 local children.
    105-year-old woman turns down preschool acceptance - Your Community
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Too bad she did not come. She could have put the teachers in place, and be VERY popular with the kids.

    Great post, Vautrin! I agree, too!

    It would be even more hilarious if the teacher is the (great)granddaughter of this 105-year old woman. That would really be a joy for the kids.
