Welcome to the site, there's tons of info here you can absorb, may I suggest you read Michael Bush's Beginner's section. He has good advice. Here's a link: http://www.bushfarms.com/beesnewbees.htm
Its one thing to read up but when you start keeping bees that's when the real learning takes place. Don't be afraid to make mistakes when y'all start, this is one of the best ways to learn as the saying goes, if you're not making mistakes, you're not learning, of course unless you keep repeating the same ones over and again.
Here on this site we feed off of each other and you are quite welcome to jump right in, you will have a bank of knowledge here at all times, so you'll never be completely in the dark.
Good luck with your journey!
