It was a good first day back to school for the kids and for mom and dad.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner spent Tuesday morning together dropping off their kids – Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3 – at their first day of school.

“They smiled and chatted during the morning run,” says a source. “There was no obvious tension between them.”

Things appear to be getting back to normal for the couple. Garner, who spent the summer filming Miracles From Heaven in Atlanta, was back to her usual L.A. routine over the Labor Day weekend running errands, stopping by a local nail salon and attending Sunday morning church services.

On Sept. 3, the couple was also spotted together visiting a family counseling center in L.A.

But despite the show of solidarity, a source says, “there is no reconciliation. They are working with a professional because there are emotions involved and they want to make this transition as easy as possible for their family.”

Inside Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s Split

Instead, the two are doing what they’ve done since announcing their split on June 30, and simply putting their kids first.

“They were focused on making sure each kid had a good first day back at school.”
