Michele and Barack Obama had great two weeks on Martha’s Vineyard.

Michele would rent out Soul Cycle and Eclipse, a pilates studio in Edgartown, for her and her friends to get in the morning workout. The former president hit the links for his exercise. They were both very low key this year and I am told he spent some of his time meeting with Elizabeth Warren and other important Democrats.

After all of the heady business, proud parents Barack and Michelle have officially sent their eldest daughter, 19-year-old Malia Obama, off to college at Harvard University.

Per photos published by The Daily Mail, the former POTUS and FLOTUS were present as Malia moved into an on-campus residence on Monday, one day before her classmates began arriving for the fall semester.

Malia was also spotted getting to know the Cambridge, Mass. area with a group of pals. She dressed casually in a black slip dress over an Alexander Wang graphic tee and white sneakers. Obama will have the next few days to get acclimated to college life, as the academic year is set to begin next Wednesday, Aug. 30. The former first daughter graduated from high school in 2015, but elected to postpone her enrollment at Harvard in order to take full advantage of the widely-encouraged gap year.
