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!

"Licked Before You Begin" -Rolling with Atticus Finch
Birthdays come and go... another year, another nail in the ole' coffin of time. This year I battled a chest cold that turned into an infection but stood there in the classroom and delivered... (as I've always done!) My line-up included that day: Aesop's Fables periods 1 &2, Phantom of the Opera periods 3&4, (head on the desk 20 minute exhaustion nap for lunch) Oliver Twist period 5 (Mr. Brownlow meets Nancy on London Bridge) Of Mice and Men period 6 (Boy, that Candy really likes to eavesdrop...) and To Kill a Mockingbird for period 7&8 (Mrs. Dubose gets her Ivanhoe and Jem becomes ... something that it's a sin to shot) It's not fair to be sick on your birthday! Then again... who said life was fair?
