During a recent trip to Michaels, we let Ian pick out a model car. Naturally, he picked the purple one to coordinate with his other purple car, known simply as “Purple Car”. This was a simple snap-together model that didn’t require paint, which was a good fit for Ian’s attention span. He served as the foreman on the construction job, helping me find parts and overseeing the action. Once assembly was complete, he helped me put the stickers on the car.
