The theme for the day was “egg-ucation.” The first lady, a community college professor, turned the South Lawn into a school community with a variety of educational stations.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Undaunted by soggy skies, President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, kicked off the first White House Easter Egg Roll since before the coronavirus pandemic on Monday, welcoming some 30,000 kids and adults for the all-day event.

The president encouraged one young egg-roller, coaching the child, “Go. You got it.”

“My job is to keep it from raining for another two minutes,” he said in opening remarks on the South Lawn.
