Back in March, we reported that the POTUS himself had joined the ranks of Pinterest users, posting photos of First Dog Bo and the Obama family chili recipe. Well, Mr. President had his three months in the sun–now, it’s time for the First Lady to hop onto the Pinterest bandwagon.

The Verge reports that First Lady Obama joined the site today and has already pinned adorable family photos pegged to Father’s Day, as well as photos of President Obama’s inauguration. One album, called “Around the White House,” spotlights the work the First Lady does through her Let’s Move initiative.

Of course, like President Obama’s account, the First Lady’s is run by the Obama 2012 campaign, though pins specifically published by Ms. Obama are signed “-mo.” One squee-inducing family photo includes the caption “We are dad’s biggest fans, each and every day – mo.”
