This Is Childhood: FIVE

Just like childhood itself, our series This is Childhood rolls forward with breathtaking speed.  Today Allison Slater Tate writes about FIVE.  I read this piece for the first time on Sunday, I’ve read it several times since, and I’ve cried every single time.  It feels like just yesterday that Grace, and then Whit, were five.  Allison captures the particular magic of five, which is, as she says, both an end and a beginning.

Please read Allison’s beautiful piece about five – I can promise you’ll be glad you did.
