Ah yes - enjoy the excitement - it is a huge moment!  And make sure your wallet is flush with cash while you work to find the perfect fit as she moves ahead.[biggrin]

That is great!  I made sure to take pictures at each of my DD's 3 fittings so far.  She doesn't think the pics are necessary any more, but to me it's a journey that I want to document so she can reflect on it later.

My DDs first point class is tonight at the studio. Last week, that brought their shoes in for a sewing party.  They were taught how to sew in the elastics and ribbons.  She sewed hers at home so it was fun to watch. 
We carpool and it is not my turn to drive so I told her to take a picture of herself in the mirror before class starts of her first class!

I'm curious as to whether they all will still be happy a few weeks from now when the bleeding begins.   [biggrin]

There really shouldn't be any bleeding...my DD's instructor is pretty big on making sure there isn't pain involved. Now that she's doing more pointe work there's more pain afterwards but not tons. And certainly no bleeding.
