Do your children (for those that don't home school) see their classmates often outside of school?

I wish I had a spin off question for homeschoolers...I guess maybe their RE classes, do they see those classmates outside of RE?

Not really... I don't really know any of the parents well at all and we live in a big city, not a small town, so the kids that are in her class are from all kinds of different neighbourhoods around the school. Last year in her first year of kindergarten, she was invited to 2 school parties & saw a bunch of friends then. But this year, there weren't even any parties.. weird. So, no. I know she wants to, but I can't just take her to a child's home that I don't know where s/he lives OR the parents.

My 2nd grader has play dates about once a week (either at a friend's house or a friend comes to our house.) We usually do them Friday afternoons or over the weekend. I work full time teaching and I tutor twice a week after school, so arranging for play dates during the week is difficult. I feel like we are at birthday parties almost every other weekend!

My kindergartner has had a few, not many, but I guess because we are just "starting out." I don't know many of the parents of the kids in her class, so that makes it challenging as well. We've gone to a few birthday parties this year.

With school (and work) ending in a week and summer camp beginning, I am sure we'll be busy with play dates soon enough!

I wish they did. I tried to let my oldest go over to a classmates house last year, but I didn't like the way the "friend" treated my son, that ended.
I don't end up asking other parents if their child can come over because I assume they don't know me and wouldn't send their kid to my house. I know I wouldn't send my children to someone's house that I don't know. I did just send a letter to a parent this week asking if our kids could get together over the summer. We'll see how that ends up. I know my older two want to have friends over.

This is sort of me as well in the way that the kids are scattered all over the town, Idk if I would say Boise is a "big city" but it is not small by any means. Boise is like the best of both worlds sometimes...but has quite a population base.
Anyway, it makes it hard for Courtney to see her classmates cuz the public school is not where she goes. However, her class does still have parties, so she sees them then. The parents I know, I wouldn't call us best friends or anything, having had Courtney at 19 I don't exactly fit in age wise with the parents, so I think that kind of forms somewhat of a barrier. They're very friendly, and we get along and everything, it just is I always feel like an outsider in the group...part of it also may be that we moved away Kindergarten year and everybody else got to know each other, while we were away, they totally were all excited when we moved back though. Anyway, I started this post, cuz I just wish we did, now that it is summer it is just something I'd like to have happen.

The older three see a lot of their friends outside school. Elijah goes into the city almost every Saturday with hers. Rheiya has sleepovers at friends' houses every other weekend and Lucas has his best friend a few doors down from us, although they go all over town to see other friends. Jaidyn has a two classmates in the same street that she sees occasionally, but her best friend lives on the other side of town so she has to have playdates arranged to see him. She is also friends with our neighbours granddaughter who is here most weekends, who doesn't go to the same school. She also makes friends with whoever is at the park when she goes
