Colony is ok, not as busy as expected

So far, only 5 of the 10 frames are drawn out with wax/honey/brood. The other frames have bees on it, just no wax yet. I wonder if they are getting enough forage, they have sugar water all the time.
I inspected the hive, I saw larvae but need to bring a magnifying glass to see if I can see eggs. I'll bring a glass and make a detailed inspection next weekend.
