First day of kindergarten

Sunny Allen sits with her daughter Sophie Allen, 3, as they wait for her other daughter Claire Allen, left, to feel comfortable in her new class Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, at Sawtooth Elementary School in Twin Falls Idaho. This was Claire's first day in Tammy Petersen's kindergarten class. 'She's having a hard time,' Allen says. NOTE: This is a moment that often happens, but no one really thinks about. For a child going to school for the first time, it's often very difficult for them to let go. Showing a mom in the classroom really helps tell the story of what it is like for a first timer in kindergarten.
