Im looking for a good site or maybe even some help on working on this.  I have "2" divs that when slected they change places, no problem.  What i am trying to do is have them animate when switching places.  Like one div heads down and then the second one goes up.  Here is what my code looks like if you need it.  Thanks for any suggestions.  Let me know if there is anything else..
