My Son Won the Congressional Art Competiton!

Photograph by Ryan Carroll ©

Last night my son won the Congressional Art Competition for the 8th Congressional District represented by Congressman Jim Moran. Ryan was very excited and we're so happy for him!
The event was held at Arlington's new Artisphere and they did a wonderful job. All the entries will be on display through June 17th and then Ryan's photograph will be displayed for one year at the Capitol.

Thanks for indulging this happy mom with this post. Hope you have a great weekend. Michele
