            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Michael J. Schilling, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Badding and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (13 pages)

            Benjamin Rigdon appeals modification of the physical care provisions of the decree dissolving his marriage to Alicia Rigdon.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s modification, concluding that Alicia’s relocation was a sufficient change in circumstances and joint physical care is in this child’s best interests.  We do not consider Ben’s child support claims, deny each party’s request for attorney fees, and tax costs to Ben.
