      I just love that it's our president sitting on the floor of a school gym. Think about that for a second. :D

      I wonder who scored - they are amazing! He's sitting on the floor!! And he's there for his daughter!! Even the POTUS can take time to make his daughters game - just think about that.

      There's a photo from during the campaign, in the summer, when they had a family picnic in Hawaii and many people were sitting on the ground. I like it. They really are down to earth. I'm sure they were offered chairs and refused them to go be with the other parents and be less conspicuous.

      Think of the girls, who would be embarrassed to have their parents fussed over too much - it's the daughter's basketball game, it's not about pomp and circumstance.

      The parent standing up is the coach! He is cheering for his team.

      So great! They seem like nice, normal, involved parents.

      It is so refreshing to read positive comments about our president! Every news story on the internet is followed by such hateful things. Fantastic photos!

      love these glimpses into their lives, love this set, thanks for sharing with us.

      wonder if Sasha's team won? : )

    19. netsharc 59 months ago

      To defend the standing guy, maybe it was his daughter who scored.
