End of Summer - AUGUST 2018


August 4 through 7 the Suchy family all went to Montreal for Michael's mother's investiture as world leader of Daughters of Isabella.  
Without the friends and activities of the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw, their usual summer vacation, Gabby took the opportunity to catch up on a class she took over summer.  She wanted to leave room in her Fall school schedule for a class in Photography.  Her dad chaperoned in the lobby while Gabby worked.
Abby and her cousins explored the hotel and swam in the glass-bottom pool while Gabby snapped a few shots from below.
Mom and Dad relaxed.
Mom and Dad and Abby returned to Michigan the next day due to other obligations.  Gabby and Alyvia stayed with the rest of the family, went sight-seeing, and flew home the next day (unescorted!!!)
While the family was all in Montreal, Axel Rose was boarded with the trainer.  No one was happy about leaving him, and he must have been confused.  Upon Carrie and Mike's return to Michigan they went right from the airport to pick him up and bring him home.
Something wasn't right with the pup and on August 9, Axel Rose died at Woodhaven Veterinary Hospital of organ failure.  For most of the family it has been the first sudden loss of a well-loved one.  Now, a month later there are still tears that come at unexpected times.


On August 22, Gabby returned to Gabriel Richard High School as a sophomore and Abby started 7th grade at St. Pius School.


My older daughter, Katie, visited in August bringing her cat, Elijah with her.
For Gabby the sweet kitty was good therapy for the loss of her puppy.


Before school even opened Abby was practicing with her school Varsity 1 volleyball team.  One of the youngest on the team, she doesn't play the whole game, but she gets her share and plays her heart out.  She is tall, athletic, and a good player.
Mom and Gabby keep score.  Gabby also coaches the younger players.  Daddy is athletic director.  It is quite the family affair.


Gibraltar Carlson High School Football is another family affair.  Gabby is now the official football photographer with her new Canon camera and a blog of photos for the players and family, especially.  Her dad is a coach for the team.
(Gabby is also dating one of the players...Shhhhh!)  I doubt that it is much of a secret!

And that is the end of Summer 2018
