    Fresh from his weeklong trip through Asia, President Barack Obama is taking time to catch up on dad duty.

    The president and first lady Michelle Obama stopped by 8-year-old daughter Sasha's school Friday morning. White House officials said they were visiting Sidwell Friends' lower school in Bethesda, Md., for a school activity, but declined to elaborate.

    Although Obama has no public events planned Friday, it's a busy time for him. The Senate is set for a make-or-break vote Saturday on one of Obama's signature issues -- overhauling the health care system. And Obama is moving closer to his long-awaited decision on strategy for the war in Afghanistan.
