“The planting of this garden was one of the first things I wanted to do as first lady at the White House,” she told the students. “You helped make this dream a reality.” 20+ pics inside…

    She looks good! You can see in the pics how sweet & sincere she is being with the kids. Smart and compassionate, what a lovely combination. I like the # 10 tongue pic…just shows that even with all her education, accomplishments, and new status…she has remained down to earth.

    Funny you should mention the tongue picture.
    It reminds me of royalty in Europe—–you’ll never see them eat at functions. They simply do not allow cameras to film while they are eating to avoid unflattering photos like the one of Michelle Obama’s tongue!!
    Still love Mrs. Obama—-tongue or not:-)

    Wow what a difference from Mrs. Bush.. She dresses like she just
    came out of a J Crew Catalogue….It is so nice to see a First Lady
    that is so relaxed at the White House… You would never see Laura
