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!

To everyone involved in our two Shakespeare productions this year- Thank You!
I know that you enjoyed it because we laughed, every day in class we laughed until we fell onto the floor. We took this impossible thing and made it our own.
All the lunch practices, all the after school meetings, all the rehearsals ... I know I made you crazy, but it was worth it.
When nobody believes in you... when you're surrounded by people just trying to cover their backside, when teachers and administrators all have agendas that seem to endlessly back-stab you... I just wanted you to know, that I was so proud of you.
