I think your light plan looks good.
You won't need 4 downlights in your master bedroom. We have 2 and that is more than bright enough.
We added a spotlight under the eaves for the backyard and one for the driveway.
We added 2 downlights at the side of the house you walk down so it isn't dark at night time.
We did extra lights in the kitchen, we have 2 where you do and then another 2 over the island (unless you are doing pendants over the island).
Do you have a TV point in the family room?

Seems like plenty of lights but nowhere near enough power sockets.
Unless you want power boards and extension leads all round the house you probably need 2-3 times as many double power outlets.
There are some ideas at anewhouse.com.au

Agree re the power points, put in as many as you can. I put a double on just about every wall, and still wish for a few more.
You don't have any in the family room - where is your TV going to go? Think about things like
- wireless speakers
- Kitchen island, use ours there all the time for stick mixer .
- side walls of garage
- TV in bedroom
