It's that time of the year again! Summer has officially come to a close and kids across the nation are ditching their beach-ready flip flops for backpacks and uniforms. 

Standing at the door with a camera in hand and a tear in their eye? The parents, of course! And no surprise here, celebrities are just like us when it comes to sending off their children to start the year off right. 

Hollywood moms and dads like Jennifer Lopez, Prince WilliamSarah Jessica Parker and more have shared heartwarming photos of their little ones as they prepare to begin another semester of education and fun. Some can't help but grab the tissues as their sons and daughters skip out the door, while others are silently cheering "Freedom!" to finally have a few hours of alone time. (And hey, who could blame them?!)

We've rounded up plenty of priceless family memories in the gallery below from your favorite stars including Jessica Simpson and Kelly Ripa. And if you or your little one has yet to start school, check out the video above for a roundup of movies that'll most definitely get you in the mood for learning! 

Good luck to all the celebrity kiddies as they head back to school!
