Obama girls start school in D.C. today

So today was the first day of school in D.C. for little Malia and Sasha Obama, First Daughters. The two girls are attending the Sidwell Friends School, a private Quaker school for the well-heeled — the school where many First Kids, including Chelsea Clinton, went.

I know President Obama and the First Lady debated sending their kids to public vs. private school but I think they made the right decision. I remember Amy Carter going to a public school here in D.C. and being bombarded by photographers way too often for a child. Remember this shot of Amy on her first day of school in D.C.?

I can’t imagine what it’s like to be the First Kids, all those people talking about you, the cameras and the scrutiny. Malia and Sasha seem like great kids. I hope the media backs off.

    I had a sorta crush on Amy Carter then — whatever type of crush a 9-13-year-old can have. And so I have been thinking about all the boys (and girls too) that will have crushes on these two.
