My son went to school for the first time this year, and like every other parent we took photos on the first day, and like every other parent we had to coach him to get a good picture. You probably saw a lot of great pictures on Tuesday. Those perfect pics probably weren't captured on the first shot.

Earlier this week we asked parents to share the first photo they took not the 18th one that turned out OK. These photos show the kid's true excitement level of going back to school. These are real back to school photos and I think they are fantastic! Check out some of the best listener-submitted photos in the gallery below.
