Today is a good day. While my brother has been an uncle for 15 years already, I'm now one myself. Landon Matthew Troxel was born at 3:37am August 31, 2017. The family is doing great.
Landon, this part's for you: you have some great parents who love you very much, and your extended family can't wait to meet you. You're on a rock that's speeding 'round a star at 67,000 miles per hour. The chances of you being here are 400 trillion to one, but now that you are, we all consider ourselves the lucky ones. Welcome to the planet.
