Lynn,

Thanks for posting the President's schedule when you're able to. It is very interesting to me and my children. Really gives the kids a sense of the President's duties.

Lynn,

Thanks for posting the President's schedule. Is it possible to know also his public events schedule for this month and next?

Thank you!

Kind regards from Spain.

This great website explains why around 4PM Thursday my wife and I were delayed by the Presidential motorcade at 14th and Constitution on their way to Williamsburg. Alas, none of the family was leaning forward enough in their cars to be visible nor did I press the correct button on my camera to invade their privacy. I'm glad they are back in town Friday night and snowed in by the the storm of the century just like the rest of us locals. But did First Bubble Dwellers have the authentic experience of hoarding eggs milk and french toast bread at the neighborhood grocery market?
