Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are "ready" for their busy fall ahead, a source tells PEOPLE.

The stars, who reignited their early aughts romance in April and have shared a whirlwind summer together, both have upcoming film projects that they'll be focusing on.

Affleck, 49, is going to Texas later this month for his new movie, Hypnotic, while Lopez, 52, will soon begin filming The Mother, her first project that is part of the multi-year production deal she signed with Netflix and announced in June.

"They are very grateful for their fun summer," the source says. "It's all about work for the next few months. Ben will head to Texas next week. Jennifer starts filming in Canada in October."

"They seem ready for it," the insider adds.

Despite their busy schedules, the pair are still prioritizing time with their families, a source previously told PEOPLE.

The "Jenny from the Block" artist co-parents her twins, daughter Emme and son Max, both 13½, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, 52. Affleck shares his daughters Violet Anne, 15½, and Seraphina Rose, 12½, and son Samuel Garner, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49.

The couple recently brought their families together for a trip to the famed Magic Castle in Los Angeles. "Since Jennifer and Ben are in it for the long run, it's just a natural step that they all spend time together with the kids," a source told PEOPLE.
