Two children begin kindergarten today. Thomas, at four years old, somehow dwarfs the other children in his brightly lit classroom. He clings to his mother’s side, hiding in the shadows of her peach cardigan. He has been fortunate to have his mother with him for every moment, every day of his life since he was born. In walks Jade, a bright-eyed, brown-skinned girl with a radiant smile. She is excited about coming back to school as she missed her VPK teacher sorely over the summer. She kisses her father’s cheek and waves goodbye as she places her Peppa Pig backpack into her cubby, finding her name with ease.
