How do I add an original estimate to a sub-task?

I have no problem estimating time for Stories, but if I create a sub-task for the story, I can't find anywhere that will allow me to estimate the sub-task time. Ideally, I will provide estimates for the sub-tasks and the sub-task estimates will bubble up to the Story level. Is there any way I can do this?
