Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Michael K. Jacobsen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., May, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (4 pages)

            Robert Wood Jr. appeals from the decree dissolving his marriage to Sarah Wood, challenging the district court’s decision to place physical care of their children to Sarah.  Robert requests physical care of the children or, in the event we affirm the court’s physical care decision, additional parenting time.  He also challenges the court’s attorney fee award to Sarah.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the district court’s factual determinations are supported by the record and affirm the physical care decision and attorney fee award.  We deny the parties’ requests for appellate attorney fees.
