Brand new, What now?

Hi all, Ive been hovering around here for a while, trying to soak it all in. Lots of great info on here unfortunatley I dont understand most of it. Anyway, the thought if sailing has always intrigued me. I have spent a great deal of my summers on ski boats zipping up and down the delta waterways of northern california. My mood has definatley been changing and the wife and I are thinking about hanging up the slolom ski and wakeboard and getting into sailing. We have looked at sailing schools and figured a 1 week live aboard school would fit the bill(101,103,104) considering a baby sitter(grandma) for 1 week straight is easier than lots of weekend trips to the bay area for spread out classes.
The question is, Are we biting off more than we should. We have zero experience on a sailboat. Our goal is to be compitent enough to bareboat in the Keys with our Kids when they are older.(preschool and diapers now)
Thanks any imput would be appreciated.
