Happy Holidays from Kristy & Roger!
Roger (Papa), who is unwaveringly proud of these souls, holds soon-to-be-six Gavin Lepley, our exceptionally eager, energetic and bright-eyed kindergartener. Kristy (Nana), the family’s gifted artist, photographer and caregiver smiles behind Ryan Barkley, our certified southerner and marine master, who tenderly cuddles the family miniature, Andrew Barkley. This cheerful little guy is readily romping toward being two next March. Next, above, is Suz Lepley, superlative college admissions specialist and one of two enthusiastic family runners. Kathleen Barkley continues to excel in the family tradition of “super-moms” in her own dazzling way. We anticipate welcoming another grandbaby from the Barkleys next May! Kath securely reins in Hanalei Barkley, who eyes a tasty squirrel out yonder. Next up is Bryan Lepley, an innovative dad who, among other things, just installed a ski lift chair on their front porch! He’s behind Ellie Lepley, eleven, our exuberant and excelling fifth grader and the other family “runner”. Missing is German shorthair Ainsley Lepley, who sprinted to the lake just minutes prior, because that’s what she does!
