No matter the occassion, you can bet that Jon Gosselin will rave about Hannah and Collin. They’re his kids!

But this week marks a very special milestone as the two young teens head back to school.

Hannah and Collin are both starting high school as freshmen, and their proud father is bursting with pride.

Jon Gosselin and Just 2 Kids

Taking to Instagram, Jon Gosselin made it clear that he isn’t afraid to use exclamation marks or all caps to display his enthusiasm.

"FRESHMAN!!!" Jon begins, practically screaming from the rooftops about Hannah and Gosselin.

Alongside his caption, he includes three photos — him with each teen, and then both siblings side-by-side, as you can see below.

Then, perhaps in case international fans don’t know what TF freshman means, Jon writes: "9th Grade Wow!!!"

"I can’t believe it!!!" he gushes.

Maintaining his pattern of exclamation marks, Jon is quick to shower his kids with well wishes.

"Good luck to Hannah and Collin this year!!!" Jon proclaims in his captions.

A lot of success in school can be surprisingly contingent upon luck.

Project partners and teacher assignments really do matter.

Then, in case anyone had missed the significance of his post, he explained: "Today is their first day of high school!!!!"

That is a huge, huge milestone.

Collin and Hannah are just two of six sextuplets, and Jon makes it extremely clear that he’s thinking of more than just the two of them.

"I hope all my kids have a wonderful year in high school this year," he affirms.

Emphasis on all my kids.

"And," Jon continues, he hopes that they "have great experiences!!!"

"Love all of you!!!" he raves, perhaps hoping that his six other children will see.

Alexis, Aaden, Leah, and Joel are Hannah and Collin’s fellow sextuplets.

They remain condemned to reside under the tyrannical rule of Kate, their nightmare mother.

(This is apparently by choice, but after more than a decade under her thumb, how much influence did she have over "their" decisions?)

Jon is also thinking of his eldest daughters, Madelyn and Cara.

They have of course graduated high school — another tremendous milestone.

Graduation Time!

As we have previously reported, Jon has been upfront about the awkwardness between himself and his Team Kate children.

"The other four aren’t talking to me," he acknowledged. "But they’re talking to Hannah."

He reasoned: "It’s what the kids want to do."

Unlike Kate, Jon seems to actually value his children’s wishes and view them as people.

"If they don’t want to talk to me, that’s fine," he acknowledged. "As long as they keep up with their sibling connections."

Jon and his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad, have opened up their home to Hannah and then to Collin.

As fans recall to their chagrin, Kate had banished Collin to be locked away in a facility to address his "special needs."

Jon has explained that Collin has nothing of the sort.

Fans have concluded that Kate just means that Collin isn’t as mindlessly obedient as Kate demands.

We join Jon in wishing all of the Gosselin kids a wonderful year at school.
