Dog days are done #backtoschool

Get those first day outfits ready, kids—school is back in session!

Parents across the country are excited for their children to learn and grow, even if going #BackToSchool largely signifies the end of summer. Education is important, though, which is why celeb moms like Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and Shanna Moakler are sentimentally celebrating their kiddos returning to the classroom!

Gwyneth and her daughter Apple, 11, soaked up their last days of summer together by hitting the pool. Previously, the actress and her mini-me were having some fun in the sun together at the beach. Gwyneth's son Moses, 9, had an adventurous vacation, too—he even got to ride a horse with polo star Nacho Figueras!

Reese, another hands-on mama, has two school-aged kids (and three total)! She shared a pic of her younger son Tennessee, who turns 2 later this month, still in his PJs while big brother Deacon, 11, waited for the school bus to pick him up. The Oscar winner's daughter Ava (who isn't pictured in the Instagram snap above) is heading back to high school this year! Reese's mini-me is growing up so fast, too—it's hard to believe, but Ava will turn 16 (!) on Sept. 9.

First day of school for these two little monsters! First day of middle school for @landon.barker @alabamaluellabarker ??

As for Shanna? Her little ones have grown up quickly, too! The beauty queen and Travis Barker's daughter Alabama is 9 and their son Landon is 11. Shanna also has a 16-year-old daughter, Atiana, from a previous relationship.

Moms, enjoy packing those lunches and helping with that homework now—before you know it they'll be moving off to college!
