Even as Angelina Jolie began the process of having a preventative double mastectomy on Feb. 2, life for her six children with Brad Pitt has remained the same.

“Things have appeared normal. The kids have kept their schedules as usual,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They have been in school during the day and have attended after-school activities like they always do.”

Less than two weeks later, on Valentine’s Day, Jolie and Pitt took their 4-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox, to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, where the family explored the dinosaur hall and Discovery Center.
