            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Patrick A. McElyea, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., Mullins, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the district court’s custody, visitation, and support order.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our de novo review of the record, we agree with the district court that the child’s best interests are served by placement of the child in the mother’s physical care with the visitation schedule set by the district court.  We also conclude the court’s allocation of the tax exemption to the mother is equitable.  Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s custody order in all respects.
