SHARE Malia and Sasha Obama visiting the White House this afternoon to check out their new home

WASHINGTON–The Obama girls, their mom and grandmother are checking out their new home on Tuesday afternoon, visiting the White House residence at the invitation of First Lady Laura Bush.

Last week, Michelle Obama and Laura Bush toured the residence and associated living space while President-elect Obama and President Bush met.

Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7 have been in Washington since Sunday night checking out new schools with their mother. Michelle’s mom, Marion Robinson, who will move to Washington with the incoming First Family is also with the family.

Obama spokesman Katie McCormick Lelyveld told me, “The First Lady graciously invited Mrs. Obama, her mother and the girls to visit what will be their new home. Of

course, Mrs. Obama greatly appreciated this invitation to provide an opportunity

for the girls to feel at home and be comfortable in this transition process.”
