| No Comments

WASHINGTON--No sleeping in after returning yesterday from an eight day trip to China, South Korea and Japan, President Obama on Friday morning with First Lady Michelle went to an event at daughter Sasha's school. Here's the pool report from Newsday's Tom Brune, a former Chicago Sun-Times reporter.

Pool report...
President, First Lady visit daughter's school

Though still on far Eastern time, the president, and the first lady, made the
trek out through morning rush hour traffic to Sidwell Friends Lower School in
Bethesda, where Sasha goes, for a non-official visit.

A WH press aide said first couple were attending a school function, but would
not elaborate. Pool was kept outside, and walked to nearby shops for coffee.
Visit lasted about 45 minutes.

For the record: Left White House at 8:30 a.m. Arrived at school in Bethesda at
9:04 a.m. Left school at 9:49 a.m. Arrived White House at 10:18 a.m.
