In December of 2008 Brian Hartenstein and family left America for an adventurous life overseas to live and work throughout Asia, raising three daughters with a sense of wonder and awe at the possibility of the world. It is now 2016 and the adventure continues back home in Oregon. This blog remains as a time capsule to that period. Thank you so much to all our friends around the world. Please stay in touch. We miss you all!

Happy Birthday Xian
Xian turns 8 years old today!
We had the big kid birthday party over the weekend with all her friends.
Rebekah got a lovely flower dress from her Grammy.
Xian had a lovely time...
Even Kinu was all smiles.
We got the best care package from their American Grandma.
Uncle Wiggily? What!
We took the morning to go bike riding and then swimming with all the kids... jumping and diving and running round...oh yes, it was exhausting but worth it.
Laughing all the way.
We'd like to thank everybody for coming out and enjoying the day with us. Happy Birthday, Kiddo!
