A video of a 102-year-old woman participating in her great-grandson’s physical education class is spreading smiles across social media.

Julia Fulkerson did stretches and aerobics with 6-year-old Brody Contreras, while he attended physical education online with his fellow first graders.

Brody’s mom, Angie Contreras of Phoenix, Arizona, told “Good Morning America” that she spoke with Brody’s teacher so Fulkerson could have a chance to meet the class, though Fulkerson beat them to it and decided to join in on the fun.

“I couldn’t stop laughing and I thought it was the sweetest thing,” Contreras said, adding that she filmed the moment. “I get such a kick out of her”
