Sand sand everywhere...

......and not a beach nearby

the playground of both Jonah and Sammy's gan is all sand, what's weird is they also have a sandbox in the yard, so they, mainly Jonah, is always sandy.

On the way home from Gan we pass a bench, I take off Jonah's shoes and shake them out, smack them on the ground, bang them together. It is incredible how much sand comes out of those shoes. It's accumulating on the manhole cover next to the bench. Next I take off his socks and get rid of all the sand that made its way inside and brush off his feet.

Amazingly, when he gets home and takes off his shoes, there is still more sand, that makes it way everywhere, all over the floor, on the couches, on toys, it's really gross and I can't firgure out how to fix it.

One thought is to place a water basin outside the door, like our forefathers did and have him rinse off his feet before entering the apartment. Short of that I can't think of anything else :(
