Kate Gosselin is a 'proud mom' as she shares a cute first day of school snap of her children
In an adorable picture Kare Gosselin showed the world how her children are all grown up and ready to enter into another grade.
Times flies in a blink of an eye, and that is exactly how Kate Gosselin must have felt while sharing the picture of her older twins and four children of her sextuplets, who are heading back to school this year. The 'Kate Plus 8' star’s her older twins Mady and Cara are starting their senior year, while the sextuplets are beginning the eighth grade.
Ahead of their big day, Kate took to her Instagram to share the picture of her six children all dressed up in uniform and ready to get started with a new grade. “This was yesterday! Feels like school never ended… and they’re already back! #SeniorYear #EighthGrade #ProudMom," she captioned the picture, which featured her older twins, Mady and Cara, both 17, and 14-year-old Aaden, Alexis, Leah, and Joel.
As reported by People, two of her sextuplets, son Collins and daughter Hanna, are missing from the picture. Collin is currently enrolled in a program away from home to help him reach his full potential. And for Hannah's absence from the picture, well there's indeed an explanation. Last week Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin through his Instagram live had claimed that Hannah has been living under his roof full-time. “She permanently lives with me,” he said in the video.
Kate also shared the image of the sweet note she gave her two eldest daughters as they begin their last year of high school. “Happy 1st day of senior year! I love you sooo much! I’m so P.R.O.U.D. of you! Love, Mommy,” read the note. Many were quick to comment how they felt that the children did grow too fast.
"Senior year and eighth grade. I feel so old now! I have been watching the show since it started when the babies were 2, and the twins were 6. I can still remember certain episodes from the first season as well. Its crazy to think you are gonna have 6 high schools and 2 college kids in a year," noted one fan. Another fan seemed to relate to how Kate was feeling as she too has a son in eighth grade, just like Kate does.
"I have a son who started 8th grade this year too...at a new school. It was much harder on me than it was him. Like the first day of kindergarten all over again," read the comment. A third person added, "Kate, they're almost grown because time flies by! Don't let anyone or anything get you down. You have always put your kids and their needs first...Good luck and you got a good looking bunch!"
While each of her children is entering into a new phase in their life, Kate is also not far behind. This fall, TLC audiences will see Kate return to the TV for a series documenting her love life, 'Kate Plus Date!' Talking about the series Kate told the magazine, I started picturing myself sitting in a rocking chair, knitting, and words like ‘old maid’ and ‘spinster’ started to come to mind, and I realized that no, I don’t want that to be my fate."
