Hi! I’m Breezy. Creator of By Your Bootstraps.

My home school journey started when I bacame a mom. You’ll be suprised to know that I never planned to have children, dispite being such a huge advocate for childhood education! And no- I’m not a teacher either.

My Son was my happiest accident, and I knew from day one that I wanted to be involved as much as possible in his life. In fact, I became a stay at home mom, and home schooling my boy was my dream come true!

The start of our home school journey was a total disaster. I took a patchwork approach at first- I gathered many different lessons, books, videos ect. that seemed interesting and tried to make a schedule that incorporated it ALL. I wanted so badly to give my children a well- rounded school experience. 

This site was created because I failed miserably! Ha! My kids and I were so frustrated and overwhelmed at the end of our long days, we were all in tears! I was burnt out and struggling HARD.

Navigating the nuances of home school rebuilt my courage AND my resolve. Even though there are plenty of mistakes yet to be made, our experience now is turning out to be the most rewarding thing I have ever done!

My kids are so happy, and so am I! We found our flow, and we get to build our school around LIFE and things that MATTER!

I want to share everything I’m learning along the way, and my greatest goal is to help other parents be advocates for our childrens education! 

I am here for you. Home schooling doesn’t have to be stressful and overwhelming. As parents, we have the greatest opportunity to impact the future by impacting our children. 

Please join our growing community and be empowered to help shape the future in home school. I genuinely can’t wait to hear from you and share in your journey!

Sincerely, Breezy


Now more than ever, it’s easy to question whether we can rely on our life lessons to carry us into the future!

We have many challenges today that require us to be more independent and strategic. My opinion is that this is a time that requires us to pass down valuable practical skills and critical thinking to our children! Let me show you how with the practical skills library!
