The First Family took a motorcade to Sidwell Friends School Thursday night, where Malia, 11, had a recital, according to the Associated Press.

Before leaving the White House with his family and mother-in-law, President Barack Obama spoke to House Democrats on issues like healthcare reform and the economy.
Earlier in the week, Michelle Obama told reporters how she was worried that her other daughter, Sasha, needed to finish a paper before heading to the recital.
