It's Albany new York, and no. I don't have any groups. He plays with the neighborhood kids (there's about 5 of them, ranging in ages.)

 Welcome to the group!

Find out about clubs, homeschool groups, co-ops, & free events at museums or things at the zoo.

I don't know what the laws for your state are but where I am lots of parents offer classes that they teach to get their kids around other kids.

 Search here on cafemom for homeschool groups in NY & also search Yahoo & Google+ groups for them.

Welcome! Besides what the other ladies mentioned, call around places and see if they have homeschool classes. Many music, and karate places do and so does many YMCAs. 8)

Thanks so much for the suggestions, there aren't many homeschooled kids in our school district so it's been difficult... Hopefully all your suggestion help!
