            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Joel Dalrymple, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals from an order modifying physical care of his child and placing the child with the mother.  He also challenges the resulting modification of child support.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother established a material and substantial change in circumstances to warrant a change in the child’s physical care.  The mother can provide superior care to the child, so we agree with the district court’s modification of physical care.  Accordingly, the district court was correct to also modify the child support award to reflect the change in physical care.
