Kyle and Sophia, along with the family's patriarch Mauricio Umansky and youngest daughter Portia Umansky, took a tour of our nation's capital this weekend. As Kyle explained in one Instagram post that featured a photo of herself, Sophia, and Mauricio in front of the Washington Monument, the RHOBH family was in Washington, D.C. to visit what will be the 18-year-old's new home when she heads off to college in the nation's capital, even though Kyle previously expressed that she had hoped Sophia would go to school closer to home in California. "Our 3rd baby is going to be going off to college," Kyle shared on Instagram. "Here in D.C exploring what is going to be her new city ...."
According to Mauricio's documentation of the family's "D.C. adventures" on Instagram, it appears that Sophia has not decided which college she will be attending just yet. "Which school will @sophiakylieee pick," Mauricio wrote on Instagram. "We will soon know."
It looks like the RHOBH family took in all the sights during their D.C. trip, including the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Renwick Gallery, Georgetown Cupcake, and even the White House.

Portia for president in 2043, anyone?
Sophia has already hit many big milestones this year as she gets ready for college, including her 18th birthday and learning how to drive. However, Kyle told The Daily Dish in February 2017 that she's "gonna be tortured when Sophia leaves." (Remember how emotional she got when her daughter Alexia Umansky went off to college in Season 5 of RHOBH?) "Sophia has a very strong personality. When she's not home, the house just feels very quiet. Like, oh, Sophia's not here. You can tell the second you step foot in the door," Kyle shared (clip above). "So when she goes to college, it's gonna be a very big adjustment."
