It’s back-to-school time! As parents, we’ve all been snapping and posting pics of our cute kids (finally) headed off to the bus or standing in front of the house with backpacks and (mostly) smiles on. Well, it looks like celebs and reality stars are no different, as these first day of school photos of the Gosselin kids were among many notable proud celeb parent posts over recent weeks.

When Jon and Kate Gosselin (separately) posted pics of their adorable eight kids headed back to school, something seemed…um, different. Kate recently posted a photo of 17-year-old (yes, they’re already that old!) twins Mady and Cara along with 14-year-old sextuplets Aden, Joel, Alexis and Leah.

If you’re counting, that’s only four of the six sextuplets. So where are the other two kids? Son Collin attends an educational program away from home while daughter Hannah lives with dad, Jon. A few days after Kate posted the back-to-school pic featuring six of her eight kids, Jon posted his own of daughter Hannah.

Gosselin captioned his school-time IG post, “Congrats Hannah on your first day of school, proud of you. I admire your bravery starting fresh!!! I Love you very much and we have worked really hard to get here. Dedication has really paid off.”

The proud dad also added, “I’m so happy you integrated yourself into the community, you made friends all summer and now you will grow and graduate with them. I’m honored to be your father!!!” Aww, how sweet!
