The Obama family has been an incredible source of laughter and comfort throughout the last eight years, but as Jan. 20 draws inexorably nearer, everyone must come to terms with the end of their time as First Family. For the millions of millennials who grew up with Barack, Michelle, Malia, and Sasha, they can seem almost like family, and seeing them leave office feels like saying goodbye. The Obama's all-time best moments in the White House are a bittersweet reminder of all that they have shared with the country and with each other during this unique experience.
All this, of course, is made even more bitter by the fact that the next president is so shockingly uncool, a stark departure from the awesomeness of the Obamas. Barron Trump could maybe bring some chill to the White House, but he won't even be living there for a while and he's still a bit young to bear such a heavy burden.
Unfortunately, the Obamas have to move on, but they're going to continue to do great things. Whether they remain active in the public eye remains to be seen, but either way, they'll keep fighting for the things they believe in and working together as a family.
These 11 moments with the Obamas show how much they've grown and experienced as the First Family, and why they'll always be remembered as one of the most beloved presidential families ever.
