U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s children Sasha and Malia have grown up in the spotlight.
They will continue to do so, at least for the next four years, as Obama takes the oath of office on Monday when the nation celebrates his second inauguration.
From their sense of fashion to where they choose to attend school, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, have been scrutinized by the media.
Let’s take a look at the sisters over the years, and how much they have grown since Obama was first sworn in at the White House four years ago.
