It's that time of year again: across the country parents are waving goodbye to their kids as they hop on the school bus for another year of learning.

For many families, taking a back-to-school photo at this time of year is an annual tradition, either showing the kids' excited faces or their gloomy expressions as they head back to class. This year, parents have even been poking fun at the trend with some very silly pictures.
