            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Fayette County, Richard D. Stochl, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  Dissent by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

            Megan Coulter appeals a district court decree awarding Stephen Schoonover physical care of their child.  OPINION HOLDS: On this record, we conclude Coulter should have been granted physical care, and we modify the physical-care determination to place physical care of the child with her.  DISSENT ASSERTS:  Based on the extremely limited trial record and ignoring the non-record facts asserted by Coulter in her brief on appeal, I would affirm.
