Meeting Mrs. Obama

It was exciting to meet Mrs. Obama as I got to give her a high-five, my class and I sang her a song and I even got interviewed by a reporter. I was also able to hand Mrs. Obama a flower from the herb garden. My class and I participated in the Farm-to-Table program at Stone Barns.

We cooked her lunch with Chef Adam from Blue Hill and we got to eat it too in the Blue Hill dining room. We enjoyed pasta and had plum crisp for dessert. Mrs. Obama said that she was counting on us for a healthy lunch that we cooked.

My class was able to go to the vegetable garden and pick cherry tomatoes and identify fruits and vegetables and fruits.

I will never forget September 24, 2010. That was the day my third grade class and I met the First Lady Michelle Obama!
