Kate and Sam may have split, but the two are trying to keep their family together. Would you be able to set aside your differences and handle a separation gracefully like these two did today taking the kids to school in NYC?

Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes are true role models for all estranged couples. After almost seven years of marriage, Kate and Sam’s lawyer Keith Schilling announced Mar. 15 their marriage was over. The joint statement made sure to point out they were “committed to the future joint parenting of their children.” Clearly these two are holding up their end of the bargain because we spotted them Apr. 6 in NYC with their two children Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, 6, and Mia Honey, 9, (Kate’s daughter from her first marriage to director Jim Threapleton).

Kate and Sam were seen leaving their West Village apartment all smiles this morning while walking their kids to school. They even waved at the paparazzi, we’re told! We wish every couple would take note of how Sam and Kate are handling this incredibly difficult situation!
