I have read that the bees will stop taking sugar water, but it just seems like logic to me that they will just want to keep taking an easy food source. What do you guys think? I am pretty confused about all this.

Yep. The first time I started feeding the hive just kept on taking the sugar water as long as I gave it to them. Now I only feed in the early spring one or two qts of syrup (depends on the hives stores). Or when I hive a swarm or package that needs some stores for the next rainy day.
