Hey MommaLeah,
I saw your question on Bee Green's page about bees and getting stung, but did not see an asnswer. We have three hives in our backyard. I have personally been stung several times-- mostly b/c of my own negligence regarding wearing protective equipment. My wife and three kids have never been stung.

When away from the hives the bees are only interested in food and don't bother people. They sting when they are defending their home. So the only time I'm at all concerned is when I'm close to the hives, which we have far enough away from the house to keep the kids away.
It's been a great hobby and quite the addition to our yard.
