The kids are home from school, and reality TV's most famous mom, Kate Gosselin, watched over her little brood Monday in these brand-new pics obtained by RadarOnline.com, which show Kate and the kids in front of their Wernersville, Pennsylvania home filming their TLC show, Kate Plus 8.
Kate -- clad in a white skirt and grey shirt that showed off her golden tan -- sipped on coffee, as camera crews filmed the comings-and-goings of the large Pennsylvania family. The Gosselin lawn is already decked out in stars-and-stripes for July 4th, as rows of small American flags were pitched in the grass.
Kate talks in great detail about her tots in her latest book, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family, which is in stores now.
Kate Plus 8 airs on TLC.
