Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Crawford County, Tod J. Deck, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Nicholas Weier appeals the modification order placing physical care of their two sons with his ex-wife Trisha Iversen.  Nicholas contends he would be the superior caregiver and that granting him physical care would “minimize the change in the children’s lives.”  In the alternative, Nicholas asks for additional visitation time.  OPINION HOLDS: After our independent review of the record and issues raised, we concur in the opinion of the district court that granting Trisha physical care is in the children’s best interests.  We also decline to alter the visitation schedule.
