need help with new wiring, 2 pot lights and switch
 
i'm moving the switch location and changing to 2 pot lights. is this correct?: from panel 14/2 to switch, then from switch to first pot light then to second? how should they be connected at each point?

I made this drawing for a different thread, you don't have to have a junction box (unless the existing wiring won't reach the switch). Grounds not shown for clarity.

at switch the two white wires will splice together and get a wire nut, the two black wires will go directly to the switch, at lights black-black and white-white, grounds go together and make sure there are ground wires going to switch and box if it is metal
