It’s Back to School Season For Everyone, Including Celebrity Kids

Every August, before the fall air swoops in to put a damper on the incessant summer heat, backpacks, notebooks, and pens start flying of the shelves. It can only mean one thing—it’s finally back to school season, and as summer comes to a close, more celebrity parents realize that sending their children back to school means they will finally have some free time during the day. But first, before they put those kids on the school bus and jump for joy, celebrity parents like Busy Philipps and Chrissy Teigen shared their sentimental posts commemorating the very first day of school (and sometimes the trouble their kids got into while they took their first visit to the classroom, in the case of Luna Stephens). Here, a look at some of the sweetest (and funniest) snaps taken by celebrity parents before their kids’ first day of school.
