News and Hues

Welcome to the newsletter.  Summer is in full swing and we aren't going to let a little bit of rain slow us down!

But First... here is a little of what happened since the last newsletter!

July was very busy but thanks to everyone who came by the Sophiola tent/booth and/or made internet purchases.  We were in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Washington, DC and...

Dallas, Texas!

It was wonderful meeting so many new and existing friends at the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Dallas, Texas.  Many thanks for making us feel so welcomed.


Constantly Becoming

Sophia’s Children’s National Medical Center Art Show in Washington, DC officially ended July 13th.  Many thanks to those who viewed her art, attended the reception and bought her art work.


Now Showing!

Sophia currently has her work on display at the Children’s National Foundation offices in Silver Spring, Maryland, the office of Ricardo A. Perez, DDS., PC (Metropolitan Pediatric Dentistry) in Chevy Chase, Maryland and Cary Street Partners (a Luxon Financial Company) in Richmond, Virginia.


And Then More Camp!
