My advice right now would be to have him on a tie out away from the kids (since you want him out with you all) while they are playing until he learns that kids are loud and move quickly, and remove him from the yard if you think he is getting too overstimulated. As for nipping at your kid on the swing, that is really a normal (though not acceptable) canine behavior. The child is moving back and forth, and most likely not quietly. To a dog this looks like a really fun game and/or stimulates prey drive. Just because he doesn't seem to have drive now, it doesn't mean its not there. Red has to be taught that playing with the kids like that is a no-no. Give him something else to do instead or keep him away. As for getting your hand while playing tug... eh, it happens. So long as it wasn't "intentional" I wouldn't worry.
