Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Kurt L. Wilke, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED WITH INSTRUCTIONS.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (17 pages)

            Mindy Ennis, formerly Mindy Wilson, appeals the order denying her request to change the custodial arrangement she and David Wolff crafted by agreement regarding their child.  Mindy argues the district court should have given her physical care of the parties’ child; she also asks for an award of appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: After our de novo review of the record, we reverse the decision of the district court and modify the decree to award Mindy physical care of the child.  We remand to the district court for consideration of the appropriate child-support award after considering the responsibility for health insurance and any other orders consistent with our decision.  We decline to award appellate attorney fees.
