Christopher House: photos for a Christmas card and other such stuff.

The Christopher House is a neat place. With cute kids. I recently went over to the ol' Chris House to shoot some photos for their holiday card. Using letters that spell out the word "JOY," I went around to the various classrooms and into the playground to see what I could see, with camera in hand.  What I saw were kids of all ages, who loved their classmates and their teachers and who regard the Christopher House as a huge part of their everyday lives. Thanks to the Christopher House for letting me come over and take some photos that would show everyone else just how lucky the kids are to have a place like The Christopher House in their lives.
