will this lawn survive?

Wondering if you folks could help me out.
I had some septic work done, after which, it dug up all the crap rocky fill to the surface.
I had a guy with an attachement on a tractor that dug up the rocks up to about 6-10 inches deep and he hauled them away.
I dont know the name of the thing, but it was a turning with spikes on it, which is what dug the rocks up.
after that it looked fine, so the lawn was seeded, hay placed over it, and ive been watering it at least 1x/day for about 2-3wks.
Now, as I was walking to the yard, I see all these rocks!
I don't know if this is ok and the lawn will be fine, or if I should have brought in other type of soil.

I've included a couple of pics. one is a wide view. This one looks ok, but the others are if you look straight down. Most of the rocks are about 1in +/-.

thanks for any help or suggestions.

I forgot to mention that the soil was rolled before seeding.
