WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is switching from affairs of state to matters closer to home and hearth.

The first family took a motorcade Thursday evening to Sidwell Friends School in Washington, where Malia, the Obama’s older daughter, attends school.

A White House spokesman says only the family is attending an event at the school and gave no other details.

Just before leaving the White House with first lady Michelle Obama, their two daughters and the first lady’s mother, Marion Robinson, the president spoke to House Democrats about health care reform, the economy and relief efforts in Haiti.
