….but she knew – she knew today was really ‘Cuatro de Mayo.’

MRS. OBAMA:  Que fantastico!  (Applause.)  Thank you, Laurie, for that wonderful introduction.  You guys are terrific — all the singing and the dancing.  It was just amazing.  You all look so pretty and bright, and your school is just beautiful.  You should be so proud to go here because it is a really beautiful school and you’re so very lucky.
