Last week I checked out amusement park rides. If you youtube and maybe do a zoom and screen share, you could ride them together. There are some great 3D ones where you can look around when up high and some Disney rides for those who prefer a bit more calm. Consider this while you are winding down, and let me know if you try it and what you think. I was hoping to put it together for you but my job now - grades - what fun! Have a wonderful day and weekend! A thought to consider as you look at your future: "Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you." John 16:23
