Honey Boo Boo starts school in metro Atlanta

Honey Boo Boo is back to school in metro Atlanta.

Alana Thompson, her mom "Mama June" Shannon and sister Lauryn AKA Pumpkin, moved from McIntyre in Middle Georgia to the metro Atlanta area a while back and are now living in Hampton.

After a busy summer that included a trip to Panama City Beach - where Mama June posed for a sizzling photo shoot in a red bathing suit - the ladies are back and ready for the new school year. They're entering the fifth and ninth grades in the Henry County school system.

Mama June posted this photo as her girls Alana and Lauryn embarked on a new school year, saying, "First day of school they was do excited they was up at 4am 5am 6am especially @lauryn_shannon I think she is most excited I just hope she has a great and alana does well too #heres2anewschoolyr #5thgrade #9thgrade"
