First of all, I have a whole new respect for Luke's teacher, a 77 year old German woman who is still going strong. When I was there, she was doing jumping jacks with the kids. It was very impressive. She's probably in better shape than I am.
Next, Luke sure gets a lot of special treatment. Half of the kids in his class are five years old and all the kids (except for one) are going into kindergarten next year. The teacher prepares almost a completely different set of work for Luke to do because he is so much younger than his classmates. It was very touching to me that someone would go to so much trouble for my son.
Luke's teacher, however, did have one little complaint about Luke. She said, "He's so stubborn! You have to make him think everything is his idea!" She went on, "I know he can't help his stubbornness, it's in his genes! I call him the 'Danish Resistance.' "
I laughed at Luke's nickname. She has no idea how accurate she is.

Luke's great-grandfather is in the center, fifth row back with a hat, white collar and tie, and dark vest.
