Kate Gosselin's Kids: Looking HUGE in First Day of School Pic!

by at .

Love her or loathe her, it's First Day of School time, and Kate Gosselin proved just how much her kids have grown up by sharing a family photo Tuesday.

"Happy 1st/2nd day of school!" she Tweeted with a picture of all eight kids.

"And, Shoka joined pic w/o being asked-&stole the show w his smile!"

Amazingly for fans of the old Jon & Kate Plus 8 (now just Kate Plus 8, returning to TLC this winter), twins Cara and Mady are now 13 years old. Thirteen!

Sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel are 10. Nine!

The Pennsylvania kids look happy and healthy as they sport unique backpacks but similar school uniforms en route to another year of education.

As for why the photo was a bit different than past years' efforts?

"Twas the first day of school today but why no traditional 'front porch photo' w bookbags & lunch boxes? Bc Leah is home sick on 1st day!," Kate shared.

Fans hoping to see more of the big TV brood - Jon Gosselin is livid about the show returning but presumably powerless to stop it - are in luck.

A December premiere of Kate Plus 8 is on tap over on TLC.

It's been three years since Kate Plus 8 was canceled, but apparently people are still clamoring for more of the kids ... or the train wreck that is Kate's life.

Either way, expect all eight, plus Kate Gosselin and Steve Neild, to be back on your screens come winter, with all the gossip coverage that comes with it.
