Roaming New Orleans last weekend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were just continuing their family tradition of on-the-go together time with their brood of six: Maddox, 9; Pax, 7; Zahara, 6; Shiloh, 4; and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
But the famously globetrotting clan isn't always on the road: With the kids getting older, school schedules have started to take precedence and the family is often based in Los Angeles – where their day-to-day life is surprisingly ordinary.
"The family live in a way that can best be described as organized chaos," an insider tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "Of course it's wild when all the kids are there, and evening tends to be a bit chaotic with dinner and bedtime."
Pitt, 47, and Jolie, 35, "are both good with rules, and there are definitely consequences, like time-outs, for bad behavior," adds the source. "But for the most part the kids all get along."
