Planning to purchase 40D with...

I am new to the SLR digital photography, this would be my first SLR, but I did ton of research and will take photography classes to educate myself as much as possible.
This forum is amazing and I was wary helpful with my decisions

I have a small baby and we celebrate many birthdays with friends and family (indoor and outdoor) and also I will soon begin hiking in So. Cal area where I can take plenty landscape photos and close-ups as well. We will do some traveling mosty sumer and beaches.

These are my choices so far...
Kit lens 28-135mm
Canon EF-S 60 f2.8 Macro - for close-up shooting - $370
Canon EF 17-40/4.0 L USM - for landscapes and wide angle shoots - $650
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM - for lowlight shoots and indoor - $370
And possibly afterwards a telephoto zoom with 1.4x extender
Canon 70-200mm f/4 L USM - $550.

I didn’t do much of the research on the flashes and tripods but I am open to any suggestions.

Looking at the price options above you can tell that I don’t want to spent a lot of money for lenses but I am trying to find best performance for a great price, so my budget is limited.

I think that will cover my all shooting ranges for beginning
I will appreciate any suggestions
