            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Greene County, Joseph McCarville, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (11 pages)

            A mother appeals a district court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We reject the mother’s claim that the district court improperly took judicial notice of a timeline submitted by the State. There is sufficient evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights.  Termination is in the children’s best interests and none of the exceptions to termination should be applied.  We affirm the decision of the district court.
