When she’s not having lunch with former First Lady Nancy Reagan, she’s making changes to her White House staff. And when she’s not doing that she’s trekking off with her girls to meet the hubby in France. Nothing like a little D-Day commemoration. Never a dull moment for the residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The First Lady will join her husband for a public event in Normandy, but the rest of the mother/daughters’ schedule is private. Aides to the First Lady say she decided to bring Malia and Sasha because the trip falls at the end of the school year, so the timing was right.
“It’s an opportunity to show the girls the sights and sounds of Europe,” an aide said.
Per usual, can’t wait for the pictures.
As for the staff changes, Michelle Obama replaced her chief of staff, Jackie Norris with friend and former co-worker Susan Sher. Sher is presently a lawyer at the White House. (You can see Sher pictured here in a 2004 story about women who worked with the Daley Administration in Chicago. Sher is pictured along with Valerie Jarrett in the story.)
Norris is taking on a new role as the senior adviser to the Corporation for National and Community service. She will work with the Obama Administration and the First Lady to push the Serve America Act.
