The Obama’s are in Maine this weekend. It is all over the news. Strangely enough they are not in Kennebunk visiting the Bushes, but are up in beautiful Bar Harbor instead. When I look at a family like theirs at first I think their lives must be anything but simple. I can not even imagine what it would be like to have people following you everywhere you go, trying to take pictures of you while you are eating a lobster roll on your vacation. But then again, in other ways they are living their own version of a simple life. Being the President is the ultimate act of service. As I stated in an earlier post, they sit down to eat dinner as a family every night they can. Michelle led the effort to have a vegetable garden at the White House for the first time. I heard Barack say how hard it was going to be to have his daughter be away at camp for a whole month this summer. It proves again that no matter who you are or whether you live in Maine or you live in the White House, you can always live your own version of a simple life.
