The kids would definitely love it, but they just went all virtual learning.

Finally finished. I will treasure it as the year I went from my most fragile to my most excited. (The white between the red and blue is actually even all the way around. just had bad light going from right to left)

Truly nice.  As you say, going from your most fragile moment to one with great joy is pretty cool.  I also think that, for a fellow who enjoys giving baseball souvenirs away and doing charitable stuff for others, I'm glad you've gotten a keeper out of this.
