My 8 packages of Italians came on Saturday.  They all got installed on Sunday.  Nothing really went wrong.  All of the queens looked small, but they may plump up when they start laying again.  I am going on a fishing trip on thursday.  S I will check on the queens at that time.  Maples in full bloom and all hives seem busy.  Very excited!

welcome back to beekeeping!  and to the site.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I wanted post an update but I had to leave for a trip.  I rechecked my bees on Thursday of last week.  They all did well.  Every queen released without trouble.  I either visualized every queen or saw her eggs.  Once I saw either of those things I shut the hive.  All are taking the pollen patty but at different rates.  All were given a comb of honey and are still doing great on stores.  All bringing in pollen.  Maples just finished but dandelions are just starting.  Will have to monitor every week for space.  I think that if they keep foraging at this pace, I will need to pyramid up faster than I initially thought.
