Those silly presidents...

Today, while reviewing pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in class, I asked the kindergarteners if they knew whose head was on the quarter.  They all stared blankly, so I gave them a hint.
"He was the very first president of the United States," I said.
Kevin shot his hand up.  "Obama!" He shouted, without even waiting to be called on.
Lauren shook her head. "That can't be Obama," she said importantly.  I sighed with relief that she could tell the difference between a very anglican-looking old man and the current president of the US.  All my hopes were dashed, however, when the reason she knew it wasn't Obama was because, "Obama's bald!"
