            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Amy Zacharias, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (11 pages)

            A mother appeals the district court order modifying the physical care arrangement of the parties’ children to grant physical care to the father.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s modification of the physical care arrangement.  On our de novo review, we conclude there was a material and substantial change in circumstances to support the modification.  We conclude the change is permanent and that the district court did not rely on incorrect facts in making its determination.
