Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner took their son to school together this morning, apparently trying to keep the little boy’s routine as normal as possible despite his father’s recent prison sentence in an underage sexting case.
The disgraced congressman, 53, and his estranged wife, 41, each held one of five-year-old Jordan’s hands during the school run in New York City.
While they started the trip together as a family of three, Weiner stopped at one point and picked up his son to say goodbye, before turning away and leaving Abedin and Jordan to complete the rest of the walk together.

Mini me! During this morning’s outing, Jordan wore camo shorts that matched his mother’s camouflage pants
As part of his sentence, Weiner has agreed to register as a sex offender, meaning he will be prevented from going within a certain distance of schools.
During this morning’s outing, Jordan wore camo shorts that matched his mother’s camouflage pants.
Abedin paired the skinny jeans with a flowy green jacket and beige ballet flats, shielding her eyes behind oversized sunglasses.
As she often does during the school run, the political staffer didn’t bring a purse but instead carried her cellphone in her hand.
Weiner, meanwhile, looked casual in beige shorts, an orange T-shirt, and blue sneakers with which he has been photographed numerous times since his sentencing.

The couple, who are currently in divorce proceedings after seven years of marriage, were seen together for the first time since Weiner’s sentencing last month.
On that occasion too, then took Jordan to school together, each holding his hand as they crossed a New York City street. Weiner, who was later photographed on his own, wearing tan chino pants, paired with a track jacket and a baseball hat.
The father also wore his son’s backpack on his shoulders during the school run, and had returned it to him by the time he was pictured alone.

The longtime Hillary Clinton aide has been pictured several times since her husband’s sentencing, taking Jordan to school on her own several times.
Last month, she was seen walking down the street in New York City after dropping Jordan off at school.
Abedin seemed to be reminding people of her own innocence with her outfit choice, a summery white eyelet frock with half-sleeves and a hem that reached past her knees.
She chatted with other school mothers as she crossed the street near her son’s school before departing and walking home.
Abedin, who filed for divorce from Weiner in May on the same day he pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor, smiled a bit as she made her way down the street.
The mother was also seen the day after her husband’s sentencing when she took Jordan to school. She looked glum on the occasion, yet well put-together, wearing embroidered jeans with a white pussy-bow blouse and hoop earrings.
Weiner, meanwhile, sat in a car nearby and the pair weren’t pictured together on that occasion.
Later that evening, Abedin was seen again – this time with a sweater on top of her outfit – heading home for the evening.

Before Weiner was sentenced, Abedin wrote a letter as part of the case, asking for mercy as she begged for the judge’s sentencing not to have a ‘negative impact’ on their son.
In the missive, she told authorities she was ‘devastated’ by the actions of her husband of seven years, and pointed out she was writing this letter for the benefit of their son, whom she called ‘the light of our life’.
‘As would any parent, if there has to be any negative impact on redacted, I would like to be as small as possible,’ Abedin wrote.
Although she asked the court be lenient during Weiner’s sexting case, the former congressman’s wife was not present when he was sentenced a week ago.
Weiner cried as Judge Denise Cote imposed a jail sentence of nearly two years, followed by three years of supervised release.
He walked free immediately after the sentencing and was seen out in Manhattan the following day, but he will have to surrender to a designated prison facility on November 6.
Earlier last month, when he and Abedin took their son Jordan to his first day of school, the father once again turned back halfway through the walk, leaving Jordan and his mother to complete the rest of the trip together.

His history of sexting with the underage girl involved in the charge
s, whom he asked to strip naked and to touch herself on Skype, was first revealed by DailyMail.com a year ago and resulted in a federal investigation.
During his sentencing hearing, the former politician said he had betrayed his son’s ‘amazing mother’, Abedin, and referred to the boy as his ‘salvation’.
‘I focus on how I live my new, smaller, healthier life one day at a time,’ he said. ‘I was a very sick man for a very long time. I have a disease but no excuse.’
He added that he understood the prosecutors’ skepticism about whether he had changed. ‘I blamed others,’ he said. ‘I convinced myself that I wasn’t the problem.’
‘I’m an addict’, he went on, referencing how he had seen the qualities in his late brother, Seth, who passed away in 2000.
The disgraced congressman said that he was going to therapy twice a week and attending meetings every day.
