            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Story County, Angela L. Doyle, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (11 pages)

                Robert (“Bobby”) Meller appeals the district court custody order granting Meranda Hendrickson physical care of their minor child.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the district court that the case presents “a close question,” but we conclude the factors weigh in favor of Bobby having physical care.
