As part of her initiative of getting people to adapt towards a more healthy and nutritous eating regime, and energectic lifestyle with her "Let's Move" campaign, First Lady, Michelle Obama visited and surprised two schools in Washington, D.C. 

In casual wear and with a bright smile, Michelle strolled into Watkins Elementary school and surprised their cooking class. The students learn how to make recipe and cook with the vegetables they grew in the school garden. During her interaction with the class, one of the students asked Michelle if she knew Joe Biden and while preparing tortillas, Mrs. Obama made a statement how she never cooked them that way before, and one of the children remarked he never seen her before. It's funny and comical. Michelle made the day and lesson extra special for those children who will remember the experience and for some, it will inspire them towards a goal and dream. 

During her second visit to Burroughs Elementary School, upon arrival to their classroom, one of the kids could not contain his excitement and joy of seeing Michelle Obama and he ran into her arms and gave her a hug. Which was really sweet and she had a motherly reaction to him. Watching those faces and seeing the reaction of those little Black girls, the twinkle in their eyes, it's like a beam of light for them and beacon of hope as in: "you can become the First Lady one day too." Little Black girls need to see more of that, more positive and nurturing role models and not negative images society have been portraying about Black women. You don't have to fight with one another, fight over men, lack in self respect and mannerism, low self-esteem, uneducated, lack in ambition, golddiggers, sisterwives nonsense (Michelle Obama is not sharing Barack Obama (he's not a pimp but a president) nor does he put her in a position to do so) and etc. like some of these reality show project about Black women. That's another topic and article to be covered. 

But anyhow, lets focus on this article. 

While at Burroughs elementary school, First Lady, Michelle Obama took part in the lesson of the class with its students and picked out earthworms with them.

"You guys have this amazing garden, and I’m so proud of you. And I want the world to see all the great things you are doing and all the great things you are learning so much from your garden and from your school," Mrs. Obama expressed.

Michelle was attentive to the children who were teaching her about composte, gardening and etc. 

 

It didn't stop there, Michelle surprised Eriks Brolis and Linda Bilsens at their home & family garden during an interview. Mrs. Obama complimented both of them for their roles as leaders, their efforts in motivating and teaching their community to garden and eat more fruits and vegetables. 


Michelle Obama will continue to visit and surprised schools and home gardens throughtout the spring season as part of her Let's Move campaign: Garden Tour Intitiative.
