The price and time you mention sound fair.
i suggest -only in a helpful way- that next year you make your ordering plans in Nov and December and get bees ordered by January- every month that goes by after that will have more and more suppliers sold out.
Getting a nuc to start out in beekeeping is I think a great way to start. You'll be learning plenty your first year anyway no matter how you get started, and a nuc will give you a head start. You'll find that having some drawn comb is a big advantage in almost all ways, and a nuc typically has 5 drawn frames. Drawn comb frames are like money in the bank to a BK.
