For many parents, the day after Labor Day is full of mixed emotions, a blend of pride mixed with a touch of sadness that surfaces when their children – another year older – start the new school year.

And it's gotta be one of the most documented days on Facebook, as moms and dads flood social media feeds with pics of their fresh-faced kids.

We asked our readers to share their photos – thanks, parents, and good luck this year! It's hard not to smile at all these smiles ...
