The summer of 2014 was a busy one for Kate Gosselin, who spent her time refuting nasty Facebook rumors and filming scenes for several upcoming episodes of Kate Plus 8. The mom just might get a little time to herself now, as her kids have returned to school.
The Gosselin kids are growing up fast! The famous children looked happy and healthy in a recently shared back-to-school snapshot. Kate forced her kids to pose for the annual photo before sending them off to school. She then posted the picture on Twitter, where it hit the trending list almost immediately.
Although the Gosselin kids looked adorable as always in this year’s back-to-school picture, their dog wound up stealing the show. Kate acknowledged this in her accompanying tweet, explaining, “Shoka joined pic without being asked and stole the show with his smile!”
Technically, Kate’s photo took place on the second day of school. Her brood was able to initially avoid the usual first day of school photo frenzy, thanks to an unfortunately sick Leah. After fans asked why she was taking so long to share her back-to-school pictures, Kate explained, “Twas the first day of school today but why no traditional ‘front porch photo’ with book bags & lunch boxes? Because Leah is home sick on first day!”
Recent reports suggest that this year’s back-to-school efforts will be featured on Kate Plus 8, along with a very eventful family vacation. Like it or not, the Gosselin family is back in the public eye!
