28. I don't think that ever happened with Laura...
The thing that stuck me is that it seems like these children were practically mobbing Michelle. It's as if they couldn't wait to get near her. I don't recall ever having seen such a scene with Laura Bush. I don't know if it was because the children were afraid of her, or if they were warned to keep their distance.

5. Isn't it wonderful to have a First Lady that we can be proud of once again?
I expect big things from Michelle, and I know she'll deliver.

What a gracious, elegant, caring First Lady she is. Such a huge change from that Monster that occupied the White House previously.

11. So brilliant to have a First Lady
who isn't giving us a blank stare that covers an innate vapidity.

Lovely, loving pics that show Michelle connects with babes as much as Obama.

16. Those kids just love her.
You can see that Michelle is really enjoying herself. Laura Bush always looked like a phony when she soent time with kids.

21. Great photos! Thanks for posting! She's just so genuine, so approachable.
REALLY happy that she's our First Lady. Not only a President I can believe in, a First Lady I can believe in, as well.

23. I'd forgotten that First Ladies could have more than
one expression. Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush always had the same frozen closed mouth half smile. Michelle Obama is a revelation.

24. She looks like she is really into this.
Her speech to St. Mary's indicated going into the community was her way of giving back and she enjoyed doing this. You can tell she is basking in the passion of service.

you go gurl, I mean Madame First Lady!

29. She looks like a loving, caring mother and a compassionate human
That's what we need as a First Lady. This is a very refreshing change and one that I hope we see much more of.

30. My two year old would freak out - she's reading Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See
That and he loves the pretty ladies and she most certainly is a pretty (and kind-hearted) lady.
