Does it make sense to swap out a 7dMkII and Eos R for an R6?

I'm a hobbyist photographer.  I mostly photograph family, friends, etc. and vacations.  Often shooting pics of my young kids who are very active and enjoy a variety of sports (swimming, biking, tennis, softball).  I've had a 7dMkII for years that served me well, but picked up an EOS R with the RF24-105 last year at a great price (holiday sale coupled with significant employer discount).  I've always enjoyed the 7dII for its speed, but the low light performance was unimpressive.  The Eos R has in turn been great for indoors shooting and I love the eye AF, but the low FPS has been disappointing.

I'm considering selling both the 7dII and the Eos R and picking up an R6.  The combine sales price would put me fairly near the price of the R6.  I know I'd appreciate the speed, and it would be nice to have a one camera kit, but I'm a little hesitant to move back to 20MP from the R's 30.  I rarely print large, but with the kids running around, I don't always frame things perfectly and it's nice to have the ability to crop that the R affords me.  Do you think I'd really notice the drop from 30 to 20MP?  Or is this a no brainer and should I be moving the 7dII and Eos R while they're still worth something?  I'd ideally love the R5, but the extra $1300 is not justifiable for me.
