weather-watch

Let’s hope this is a bit over-dramatic … I just heard on the news that if the weather is bad in Ireland on Monday – and the forecast says it will be – the President might not make it to Moneygall after all. Because he has so little time in Ireland, he has to fly to Moneygall by helicopter – the road trip there and back to Dublin would take too long. So, if the weather makes flying impossible, then he probably won’t make it out of Dublin.

Moneygall is going to be doing a lot of weather-forecast watching this weekend ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

a field trip …. home

The Hill: First daughter Sasha Obama went on a field trip Wednesday morning – to her own home. The nine-year-old attended the arrival ceremony at the White House that began Chinese President Hu Jintao’s state visit.

After the formal welcome, President Obama and the Chinese leader greeted those who came to the White House. The president paused when he reached Sasha and introduced her to Hu.

The first daughter stood out in the first row of school students … a Secret Service agent could be seen standing behind her as she waved the Chinese and American flags. Despite living in the White House, Sasha seemed visibly excited to be there, trading flags back and forth with her classmates standing near her…..

Washington Post: ….among the crowds of dignitaries and onlookers waving American and Chinese flags were about 150 students, including Obama’s younger daughter, Sasha, and several of her fourth-grade classmates from Sidwell Friends School. The youngsters are studying China in social studies, White House staffers said, and came to the welcoming ceremony as a field trip, of sorts.
