President Barack Obama is extending his Hawaii vacation by another day.

The White House says Obama will now depart late in the evening on Monday, arriving in Washington the following day. The Obamas already have pushed back their departure once, changing their return from Saturday to Sunday after the president delayed his arrival in Hawaii to stay in Washington while Congress wrapped up the legislative year.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the president is trying to squeeze in more time with his family before returning to the nation’s capital.

The delayed departure means Obama’s daughters will miss at least two days of school. Classes resume at Sidwell Friends, the private school they attend, on Monday.
