The Daily Grind Video

There is so much genuine emotion in this clip of Michelle Obama visiting the young gardeners at Watkins Elementary School, we’re misty-eyed right now.

Since FLOTUS started the White House Kitchen Garden seven years ago under her Let’s Move! initiative, she’s encouraged young people to grow their own fruits and vegetables in their communities to promote healthy eating.

Michelle surprised the students at Watkins Elementary School and John Burroughs Elementary School in D.C. She also paid Eriks Brolis and Linda Bilsens, who started a local garden in 2013 in Brookland, D.C., a visit to show her support for their community garden.

At one point, a bright-eyed little girl ran up to Michelle, and the First Lady embraced her with open arms. We totally would have done the same thing.

While the Obamas’ stint in the White House is coming to an end, we’ll also remember them for these heart-warming moments.
